The editorial material released by the EurAsian Times in the form of a separate article is titled “The S-400 systems purchased by Turkey from Russia are inoperative.” The text notes that the Turkish servicemen allegedly have not rectified the malfunctions for about six months. We are talking about the anti-aircraft systems supplied earlier by the Turkish army. The article also reports that the Greek site Pentapostagma published materials in which it wrote that the head of the Turkish defense department, Hulusi Akar, mentions the need to resolve issues by a group of experts from Ankara.
The EurAsian Times writes further that there are rumors in the Russian Federation that the military in Turkey does not have sufficient knowledge and experience to independently ensure the transfer of the S-400 to standby mode. Some analysts believe that the situation requires the prompt intervention of technical specialists from Russia.
