"The sides are holding active negotiations. I think the contract [for the delivery of Russian-made S-400 air defense missile systems to India] will be signed in the imminent future," the source said.

"Evidently, the contract will be signed this year," the source added.

"Of course, they have a number of certain problems but this contract is realistic for India. China operates combat aircraft that can quite reach Deli. So, they need certain counteraction to these planes," the source said.

Indian media outlets said earlier that India was planning to purchase five battalions of Russian-made S-400 air defense missile systems and about 6,000 surface-to-air missiles worth nearly 6 billion dollars.

In December 2015, the Indian government has cleared the procurement of five regimental units of Russian-made S-400 Triumf advanced Air Defense Systems (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler) at an estimated price of $ 4.5 billion, Defense News reports.

If the S-400 deal goes through, India would become the second buyer of the advanced missile defense system after China, which will purchase four to six units, with the first S-400 system set to be delivered within the next 12 to 18 months.

The S-400 Triumph SA-21 Growler is a long range surface-to-air missile systems produced by Almaz-Antey. The S-400 Trumph is intended to engage, ECM, radar-picket, director area, reconnaissance, strategic and tactical aircraft, tactical and theatre ballistic missiles, medium-range ballistic missiles and other current and future air attack assets at a maximum range of 400 km, and a altitude of up to 30 km.
