“We have not yet considered the possibility of buying these complexes, but our Ministry of Defense is really interested in acquiring new technologies.” The air defense systems of the Russian Federation are in the zone of our close attention, but as for these SAM systems (S-300 and S-400) I can not say anything yet, “the diplomat said.
