HomeWorld NewsPutin to Saudi Arabia: Our air defenses can protect you, like they do Turkey and Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin has suggested Saudi Arabia should buy Russian air defense systems to protect its oil facilities from drone attacks, pointing to Iran and Turkey, who operate S-300 and S-400 missiles, respectively.

“Saudi Arabia needs to make a smart decision, as Iran did by buying our S-300, and as Mr. Erdogan did by deciding to buy the most advanced S-400 Triumph air defense systems from Russia,” Putin told reporters in Ankara on Monday. “These kinds of systems are capable of defending any kind of infrastructure in Saudi Arabia from any kind of attack.”

Putin was answering a question about the recent drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which Washington has blamed on Iran, though Yemen’s Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility. A coalition led by Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen in 2015 and has fought the Houthis there since.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin has got to be laughing himself to sleep these days; not only has he one-upped Trump, in terms of his engineers producing weaponry far superior than that which the US works to sell, but also, in reaching out to disaffected former "friends" of the US, against which this country has turned, he is creating a power and economic base, such as the world has never seen.
