Putin staged US trolling by offering Saudi Arabia to buy C-300 or C-400 instead of Patriot

Vladimir Putin suggested that Saudi Arabia buy the S-300 or S-400 air defense systems instead of the Patriot.

Against the backdrop of the fact that the American Patriot air defense and missile defense systems completely failed in their tasks, having shot down only two Hussite missiles from at least 19 fired from Yemen, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested that Saudi Arabia buy much more reliable C-300 or C-400.

According to experts, Saudi Arabia can indeed acquire Russian air defense systems, however, it is obviously not about C-300 and C-400, but about Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, which have proven their highest effectiveness in Syria and Libya, however , the proposal of the Russian president is regarded as a banter over the United States, whose air defense / missile defense systems, despite their high cost, actually showed only 10% efficiency.

“This is not the first time the Patriot is out of work. Given the large-scale losses of Saudi Arabia, the latter can indeed gain Russian air defense / missile defense systems despite Washington’s position, since the same Patriot actually could not cope with the interception of conventional drones and cruise missiles developed back in the 70-80 of the last century ”, - the expert Avia.pro marks.

Official Riyadh has not yet made any statements on this subject.
