Russia suspends delivery of S-400 to China
Moscow: Amid tension over border issue between India and China, Russia has suspended the supply of S-400 missiles to China. The decision can be seen as a repercussion when Russia arrested its own scientist for sharing secret information to China. According to the Chinese newspaper, Russia has suspended the delivery of surface to air missile S-400. The S-400 missile defence system is considered as one of the highly upgraded defence systems of the world. The missile can target any fighter jet or drone up to 400 kilometres. However, the Chinese newspaper confirms that the deal is not as easy as China has to send its troops for training to Russia. Similarly, Russia has to send a technician to ensure that the weapons are working properly. Besides, China also stated that Russia has been forced to take such decision as the act can dilute the effort of the Chinese army to combat with the pandemic. China believes that Russia will never wish to peril China. Rather it is done for the welfare of China.
