Moscow - Moscow and Ankara confirmed on Tuesday that they signed a deal in which Moscow would sell Ankara S-400 missiles. "This is a missile defense system that is going to be hosted by the Turkish air force, and the Turkish air force has no experience of anti-missile systems, therefore it is going to come with a significant number of Russian advisers, trainers, and operators and so on. What were we supposed to do, wait for you?" the Turkish head of state said during a speech in Ankara on Wednesday.

Turkey has been developing stronger ties with Russian Federation and souring on its relationship with the United States, which has supported the YPG Syrian Kurdish rebels during the Syrian civil war, the BBC News reported.

The S-400 system boasts the ability to lock on 80 targets in a 400km radius. The deal is said to be worth around $2.5 billion.
