India to send military personnel for S-400 missile systems training program to Russia

India is sending a group of 100 Indian military personnel to Russia in the next few days to undergo training on key operational aspects of the S-400 air defence systems. Russia is expected to start delivery of the missile systems later this year.

Previously in October 2018, India had signed a USD 5 billion deal with Russia to buy five units of the S-400 air defence missile systems with the country making the first payment of around USD 800 million to Russia for the missile systems in 2019. The S-400 is known as Russia's most advanced long-range surface-to-air missile defence system.
