Russia and Turkey managed to perform the S-400 contract without using the US dollar as a means of payment, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the VTB Capital’s investment forum Russia Calling!
"I’ve just talked to the Turkish president, literally half an hour ago. We discussed a number of concrete issues. I would like to recall our military-technical cooperation contract, the one for S-400 air defense systems. We are aware that if we perform the settlements in US dollars, they will not be effected. We devised a different solution and the transaction was fulfilled," he said.
