Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin are expected to sign an agreement regarding the shipment of Russia’s most advanced anti-aircraft defense system, the S-400 Triumph, to India.




“As a result of [Putin’s] meeting with Narendra Modi the agreement for supplying India with S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems will be signed along with a number of other documents,” Yury Ushakov, Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy aide, said on Friday, as cited by TASS.


“Some of the documents will be signed behind closed doors,” he added, without offering further details regarding the missile systems’ shipment.


In December last year, India already approved the purchase of five S-400s.
