NATO blocks Turkish S-400 access to alliance air defense systems

Having bought the Russian S-400, Turkey was left without access to NATO air defense systems.

Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, said that Turkey’s Russian S-400 systems will not be combined with NATO air defense and missile defense systems, which obviously means that after the completion of the S-400 deployment, Ankara will simply be denied access to the radar North Atlantic Alliance.

“NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg commented on the situation. According to him, the Turkish side "will not find understanding in NATO countries due to the desire to integrate Russian-made air defense systems into the air defense system of the North Atlantic Alliance." In Turkey, meanwhile, these words were called the “double standard factor”. Ankara reminded that in Greece there is an S-300 air defense system, which, in fact, has long been structurally included in the unified NATO air defense system ”- cites the publication "Military Review".

Experts do not exclude the possibility that if the North Atlantic Alliance really restricts Turkey’s access to radar and air defense systems, Turkey may close its airspace for NATO aircraft. Moreover, there are suggestions that this could be an occasion for Ankara to acquire other Russian weapons, including the S-300 air defense system, the Pantsir-S air defense system and the Tor-M air defense system, which will ensure complete independence of the Turkish defense system.

In response, close NATO bases in Turkey.

It seems that the United States is facing a loss of air force bases in Turkey, which, combined with the deployment of the S-400 in Cuba, is tantamount to losing the Caribbean crisis ver. 2.0.
