“Russia has started supplying India with S-400 air defence missile systems, Russian news agencies reported on Sunday, citing Dmitry Shugayev, the head of the Russian military cooperation agency. The supplies put India at risk of sanctions from the United States under a 2017 US law aimed at deterring countries from buying Russian military hardware. ‘The first supplies have already been started,’ Interfax cited Shugayev as saying on Sunday at an aerospace trade show in Dubai. He said that the first unit of an S-400 system would arrive in India by the end of this year.” (11/14/21)
