Implementation of the deal for the delivery of Russia’s S-400 air defense system to Turkey is in full swing despite US pressure, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said Tuesday.
Speaking at a press conference in the southern resort city of Sochi, Ushakov said Moscow is aware of US attempts to persuade Turkey to suspend the deal.
"What the Americans insist, we know. But implementation of the agreement, which was reached a few months ago, is in full swing," he said.
He added that during his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested the idea of Russian-US presidential contacts on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Osaka in late June.
