Turkey handed over to the United States the Russian Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile and cannon system captured in Libya in exchange for the fact that American sanctions against Istanbul would never be imposed, despite the earlier decision on this matter.

According to, the captured Russian equipment was immediately handed over to Turkey, and from the territory of this country the equipment came to the American military. At the same time, as the military expert of the publication notes, for the United States, this complex is not of such great interest, in contrast to, for example, the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM). The American military is well aware of the potential of the Pantsir-S, since this technique was at the American military base in Iraq and protected it from possible attacks from pro-Iranian groups.

We will remind, earlier Turkey refused to transfer to the United States the technical parameters of the Russian S-400, which entered service with this country. The S-400 poses a threat to the American military, since a missile launched from this complex hits the target by almost 100%. Then America threatened Turkey with sanctions. In addition, Washington launched the procedure for Turkey's withdrawal from NATO.
