Russia To Start Deliveries Of S-400 To Turkey In July

Russia will start delivering its S-400 missile defense systems to Turkey in July, the head of Russian state arms exporter Rosoboronexport said, according to Interfax news agency. “Everything has been already discussed and agreed,” Alexander Mikheev told Interfax. The United States has threatened to impose sanctions if Turkey seals its S-400 deal with Russia. Ankara has said its purchase should not trigger sanctions as Turkey is not an adversary of Washington and remains committed to the NATO alliance.

Greece already has S-300 in the Aegean islands, so.... Is Greece in NATO or not?

If Erdogan decides to break with Putin and Russia he will have problems in Syria, problems in Tourist Industry, problems with energy and problems with his base which is anti-American, anti Western and friendly to Eurasian. Without Russia he will survive with some scratches and minor wounds, but hurting U.S. he has no chance to survive...In this case he will become an other Maduro.

"Can US convince Turkey to undo 'done deal' with Russia"

The whole F-35/S-400 is overblown in any case. Turkey will almost certainly have the S-400. No diubt.  The US Congress will make a noise, it may even block the F-35 in a while, but in the end the S-400 will be a fact on the ground that they will have to learn to live with. I can't see the US blocking F-35 transfers forever. It gives the US too much control over the Turkish air force...

I think that the S400 purchase is the best sign of Turkey's exit from NATO and realignment with Russia.
It's impossible to keep one foot in NATO and another in Russia?

Clarity. We would not feel that we would have to go to the aid of Turkey If Russia or anyone else attacks them. They have been of little help to us unless rewarded. An example is in keeping illegal emigrants within their borders.

The purchase of this system by Turkey from Russia helps Turkey get concessions from Russia in Syria.
