Russia Says S-300 Delivery Completed

Head of Russia’s arms export agency said Moscow has completed the delivery of S-300 surface-to-air missile defense system to Iran. “All divisions have been supplied,” Alexander Fomin was quoted as saying by Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency on Thursday. On April 17, Iran displayed part of the sophisticated missile system in a military parade in Tehran, held to mark National Army Day. Later in July, Iran received the first batch of missiles of the Russian-made air defense system. The gear unveiled in the ceremony included two radar systems of S-300, its carrier and command vehicles as well as the crane for lifting its missiles. Under an initial contract signed in 2007, Russia was required to provide Iran with at least five S-300 defense system batteries. But the contract, worth more than $800 million, was revoked after then-president Dmitry Medvedev banned the supply of the systems to Tehran in 2010. Later, Iran lodged a $4 billion lawsuit at an international court in Geneva against Russia’s arms export agency. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided in April last year to lift the ban on the S-300 delivery to Iran and Tehran dropped its complaint.
