India, Russia Set To Ink Rs 39,000-Cr Air Defence System Deal In Oct


India is expected to hammer out a Rs 39,000-crore deal with Russia for S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems this October when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Vlamidir Putin meet in New Delhi for the annual summit between the two countries, top government  officials tracking the deal said on condition of anonymity.

India is in talks with Russia to buy five advanced S-400 missile systems, capable of destroying jets, missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at a range of 400km.

Wide-ranging discussions on several military projects, including the proposed S-400 deal, took place between defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who is currently in Moscow, and top Russian leaders such as Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and defence minister Sergei Shoigu, one of the officials cited in the first instance said.
