Russia, Iran ambiguous over S-300

The Iranian Defense Minister’s visit to Moscow did not bring any new agreements. Likely, the Russians meant the visit to remind Obama of the cost of an American ABM shield in Poland.

The Iranians have asked for five or six S-300 batteries, and the Russians claim none have been supplied. The Iranians asserted they have some S-300s, as indeed confirmed by Israeli intelligence photos leaked in late 2008. Those S-300s probably came from Byelorussia: they are old models, but full-featured, without the export limitations.

The location of Syrian port of Tartus is more interesting to Russia now than the sale of S-300 to Iran. If there’s no deal, Russians will someone else to sell them to.
