The first shipment of the Russian-supplied S-400 surface-to-air missile system has arrived in Turkey on Friday.

Despite Washington’s threats, Turkey’s S-400 purchase had a broad repercussion in the Western press.


US’ Washington Post has announced the first shipment of the Russian missile system. In the “Turkey takes the first shipment of Russian S-400 air-defense system in defiance of US and NATO warnings” headlined analysis, the paper said that the shipment was a clear message to the US.

It declared the purchase was a defiance to the Washington administration.


UK’s BBC has also announced the shipment with the same point of view.

It said that Turkey defies US as Russian S-400 missile defense arrives, adding the move will anger the US, which has warned that Turkey cannot have both the S-400 anti-aircraft defense system and US F-35 fighter jets.
