On the website of the Saudi edition Arab News the expert reminds that contracts for their delivery were signed with China and Turkey. Beijing underwent for it to sanctions, and Ankara, being a member of NATO, is under the huge pressure of Washington. The USA also watches closely possible sales of S-400 to Algeria, Belarus, Iran and Vietnam.

At the beginning of October Uzbekistan was visited by the Russian Minister of Defence Sergey Shoygu who called the republic the strategic partner of Russia. To turn the partner into the ally, Moscow needs to resist to influence of China which became the largest trade partner of Tashkent and also the USA which seeks to restore strategic partnership with Uzbekistan after closing of the military and air base there in 2005, concludes the agency. *** Russia capitalizes the military and political support to Syrian regime for expansion of economic presence, notices the Lebanese edition Le Commerce du Levant.
