Turkey Begs Russia For S-400 Systems, Promises Not to Give Them to NATO

Seems a bit risky to us

We reported earlier this week that Ankara is interested in a kebab-for weapons deal with Russia.

Yes, we are incorrigible — but we weren’t straying too far from the facts: Turkey is seeking a Russian load to buy Russian weapons, including S-400 anti-air systems.

Oddly enough, Moscow seems open to the idea. We can only hope that there is a very good reason for this — perhaps it’s part of behind-the-scenes negotiations about Syria or even a token of goodwill to sweeten the Turk Stream deal.

The obvious problem though is that Russia would be selling some of its most advanced military hardware to a NATO member. Which begs the question: Isn’t that a bit … risky?

Probably. And apparently Turkey appreciates why this could be a concern for Moscow.
