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.

"A CLEAR MESSAGE"

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.

"THE MOVE WILL ANGER THE US"

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.
