UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Turkey will receive a second battery from Russia’s S-400 missile air defense system from Tuesday, the country’s Anatolian news agency quoted Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar as saying on Monday.

Ankara received the first parts of the system in July despite warnings of possible US sanctions over the deal. Washington says the system is incompatible with NATO defenses.
