China wants to buy S-400 anti-aircraft missile launchers from Russia, Vasily Kashin from the Center for Strategy and Technology Analysis told Interfax-AVN on Monday, January 16, 2012. "China has expressed its interest in buying S-400 systems. As far as I understand, Russia is reserved about this deal," he said.
Russian officials said many times that the deliveries of the new system, S-400 'Triumf', to foreign partners, among them China, would begun after the demand from the national armed forces was met in full.
