Mattis said it was “a sovereign decision” and Ankara can buy the s-400 system, if you want. However, the Pentagon chief noted that the Russian systems are not compatible with NATO equipment.
Earlier it was reported that Turkey plans to buy Russian anti-aircraft missile systems s-400. They are capable of hitting targets in the air distance up to 400 kilometers.
