India has signaled it will ask Washington for a special waiver from the sanctions to purchase the S-400 systems.

Russian Federation said in April it expected to sign a deal with India this year on the sale of the S-400. Both leaders will hold talks on October 5 after which as many as 20 agreements are expected to be signed, including the purchase of S-400 Triumf air defence systems. According to a media report, India and Russian Federation will sign a deal for the multi-billion-dollar S-400 surface-to-air missile system this week.

Russian-Indian summits became regular annual events, taking place on a parity basis alternately in India and in Russia. This annual summitry is unique as Russian Federation is one of only two countries, the other one being Japan, with which India holds this summit. Congress enacted legislation this year that would allow the president to waive the sanctions for countries that are developing defense relationships with Washington. Russia, and other countries, recently have been trying to reduce the use of USA dollars in their economies and as a transaction tool.

India is now looking to upgrade and diversify its capabilities, and sees the S-400 missile systems as a game-changer. "Perhaps we could even go back to the old India-Soviet system of barter, at least for the short term". For months, there have been indications from New Delhi that it will sign the deal notwithstanding the United States sanctions.

Mr Skripal is a former Russian intelligence officer, who was arrested in 2004 and put on trial for "high treason in the form of espionage" by a Moscow military court.

"It is not practical to think India will be able to reduce its dependence on Russian Federation or it can close its options of buying from other countries", says defense analyst Amit Cowshish at the Indian Institute of Defense Studies and Analyses in New Delhi.
