Iraq Demands Immediate Delivery of S-400 from Russia (updated)

Deputy Chairman of the Defense Committee Alexander Sherin confirmed the sale of Russian S-400s to Iraq.

Alexander Sherin, deputy chairman of the State Duma’s defense committee, in an interview with the FAN Russian media outlet, confirmed the intensification of negotiations on the sale of Russian S-400s to Iraq.

“They, apparently, just realized there that they are an occupied country, which does not have the right to any independent actions. The attack on a high-ranking military leader on their own territory without any prior notice was a clear blow to their international authority.

However, I can’t imagine how and through what accounts Iraq will pay us for weapons if the Americans freeze them all. And they are technically able to provide transfer of the S-400 from Russia to itself – is not entirely clear “, – said Sherin in an interview,” Federal News Agency. “

It should be clarified that in addition to acquiring Russian S-400s, Baghdad also does not exclude the acquisition of Russian S-300 air defense systems, the latest upgraded versions of which are also very effective in the fight against any aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, not to mention that such systems will be able to successfully repel ballistic missile attacks.

The Iraqi Prime Minister was instructed to urgently negotiate with Russia on the purchase of the S-400.

Deputies of the Iraqi parliament empowered the Prime Minister to immediately discuss with Russia the acquisition of the S-400 air defense system. These systems will have to protect Iraq’s airspace from any external and internal threats, while negotiations are supposed to be held in the shortest possible time.

According to the American publication The Wall Street Journal, Baghdad is seriously considering the possibility of acquiring Russian S-400 air defense systems, which is due to the recent actions of Washington, which led to a serious military conflict between Iran and the United States and violated the sovereignty of Iraq.

“Members of the Iraqi parliament said the country is considering buying a Russian air defense system, as the Kremlin intends to strengthen its presence in the Middle East and drive a wedge between Baghdad and Washington. Iraqi lawmakers said the government has decided to continue negotiations on the purchase of Russian S-400 air defense systems in response to fears that the US may withdraw its support for Baghdad.

“We are negotiating with Russia about the S-400 systems, but the contracts have not been signed yet,” said Karim Eliwi, a member of the Iraqi parliament and member of the security and defense committee. “We need to get these missiles, especially after the Americans have disappointed us many times without helping us get the right weapons,” The Wall Street Journal reports.

Due to the fact that the United States of America refuses to sell its air defense/missile defense systems to Iraq, the most suitable in this case would be Russian air defense and missile defense systems, which will allow Iraq to take complete control not only of its airspace, but also the airspace of neighboring countries, from the territory of which the threat may come.

Given the rather high cost of Russian S-400s, Iraq may acquire a modern version of the Russian S-300s, on which negotiations are already underway between Baghdad and Moscow, however, experts believe that Russia may well provide Iraq with Triumphs, for example, in exchange for providing bases in Iraq or the combination of Russian air defense systems in Syria with Iraqi, which will make it possible to control most of the airspace over the Middle East.

  1. I must quote what I heard , said y some girl on twitter said ” Hey We the American’s Liberated You and Gave You Democracy BUT THAT Doesn’t mean You can make your own Decisions “”” ……. …….

  2. Iraq demands …. First, withdraw all the interventionist troops. Send normal officers with good IQ to Russia – there they will be taught how to properly manage air defense systems. This is not a PC shooter. This is not a sling or AK. Here brains are needed and thorough training. Buy and deliver a defense in depth system – a separate air defense unit in the middle of the desert is a waste of money and the first target. Americans and Israelis will very easily destroy the S-300/400 complex if it stands on its own. The military budget of Saudi Arabia is approximately equal to the budget of the Russian Federation, a sea of ​​high-tech weapons. But did they learn to fight well? Hussites with double-barreled shots beat them, figuratively speaking. Modern weapon systems are high-tech, you must be a pro to use it effectively. First put order in your country, and then build professional defense. You have a courtyard there – who wants and how he wants to ride and fly. Good luck.

  3. I reckon that if Putin can get a whole lot of gear down here unannounced, then he can Short the Dollar and Forward the Ruble, Big Time, so that we can go 50/50 to clear our National Debt and pay for the equipment.

  4. Ask any grade school teacher about indulging a bully. The longer you indulge a bully the worse it gets. Some of us in the U.S. are not happy with Donald Adolph in charge. He was a well documented liar and con artist from New York by the late top journalist Wayne Barrett formerly with the Village Voice. He documented that Donald Adolph is and has been a gangster liar cheater for 30 years before the fools in America promoted him to his level of incompetence. Russia should take advantage of this opportunity to act as policeman over their and join hands with Iran, Syria and Iraq and bomb the U.S. out of all areas it is criminally occupying today; namely, Syria, Iraq and all areas stolen by Israel from Palestinians. While they are at it they should turn the criminals in Israel to dust. All the problems over there are at bottom due to thugs in Israel who seek to steal the rest of that area anyway. Israel did 9/11/01 with the aid of Bush, Cheney and the four star generals. America is a shameful international bully criminal nation today run by dictator Donald Adolph Hitler from the cesspool of America New York.

    • The ambush is the most cowardly way to murder an opponent. If Donald Adolph had had any personal integrity at all, he would have challenged Iranian General Solemani to a duel in public. I am sure the General would have let Donald Adolph choose the weapons. At least if they had fought this honorable way. the world would be much safer without Donald Adolph on the scene instead of the General. Our so called president is a gutless coward who ordered others to do the dirty work. He is a shameful disgrace to everything this country once stood for. He is the lowest of the low. Every country around the world today must take notice and learn from this coward in charge of America who has risen to his level of incompetence where he can and is and will do unspeakable damage to America and the World. Americans have degenerated to an all time low today. The world must act before they nuke the whole planet.

  5. It took Iraqis only what? about 35 years to realize who the is the Undertaker of their people and integrity? There is no such thing that electricizes or puts Americans into proper perspective than the mention of Russian support and equipment, and every serious statesman ought to consider this. Since the end of WWII 1945 US are in the “war for the world”, and in order to counter their toxic influence it is absolutely inavoidable to confer with their alleged antagonists Russia, China and the whole train of “outlaw” nations. Even low forehead Bush jr. was quoted to say that his government only have about 15 years or so before the Russians get to Iraq and Middle East (15 years of looting and pillaging of course). The name of the game is to always get acquainted with US archnemesis.
