Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov on Sunday said that S-400 air defence missile systems will be delivered to India in strict accordance with the schedule.


"The advance payment has been received and everything will be delivered in strict accordance with the schedule, within about 18-19 months," Borisov said.

India had signed a $5.43-billion deal to buy five S-400s, Russia’s most advanced long-range surface-to-air missile defence system, in October last year. The country wants to procure the long-range missile systems to tighten its air defence mechanism, particularly along the nearly 4,000-km-long Sino-India border.

The S-400 is an upgraded version of the S-300 systems. The missile system, manufactured by Almaz-Antey, has been in service in Russia since 2007.
