Washington / New Delhi: Before leaving, US President Donald Trump banned Turkey from buying Russian S-400,000 air defense systems. At the same time, other countries have been warned not to enter into such agreements with Russia. This new dispute will now have to be resolved by Joe Biden, who is set to be sworn in in January 2020. This action by the US raises the question, what will be its attitude towards India? Because India is among those who want a Russian missile system.
A statement from the US government said, “Turkey has violated the rules and has been banned.” We expect the rest of the world to comply with Section 2231 of the Counter America America’s Advertisement Through Persons Act (CAATSA). The United States has said other countries should stay away from Russia’s defense system, which could lead to sanctions.

The agreement was reached in 201
India signed 4 4.4.43 billion for five units of S40,000 air defense system from Russia in 201 Russia. New Delhi ignored the US objections. Although the Modi government had largely resolved the issue at the diplomatic level, Donald Trump has now rekindled the controversy by imposing sanctions on Turkey on his way to the Presidential Palace. In such a scenario, now everything depends on Biden and India will have to formulate its strategy accordingly.
This is America’s wish
The US wants India to ignore Russia when it comes to defense procurement. Donald Trump has expressed this desire many times. He said it was an arms race, but he himself had signed several defense deals with India. During a visit to India in 2012, Trump announced a $ 1.3 billion arms deal with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The deal includes two Sik Sikorsky MH600 RC Hawk multi-role helicopters, six Boeing AH64 64E Apache Guardian attack helicopters.
Why is the S-400 special?
Russia’s S40,000 air defense system is the world’s most dangerous weapon. This air hit system from the ground can detect any possible air attack in advance. The S40,000 can destroy aircraft, cruise missiles and even nuclear missiles up to 100,000 kilometers in advance. The S-400 is equipped with state-of-the-art radars and can see targets up to 60,000 kilometers away. Because it is connected to the satellite, the necessary signals and information are immediately available. The special thing is that this system can hit 36 targets simultaneously and it can be modified in minutes.
