    Sergey Chemezov, CEO of the Russian Rostec Corporation, says Moscow is ready to sell S-400 air defense systems to any nation, including the United States.

    "The S-400 is not an offensive system; it is a defensive system. We can sell it to Americans if they want to," Chemezov said in an interview with the Washington Post. "So, there is really no issue from the strategic point of view. And I don’t see any problems for Russia from the point of view of security. On the contrary, if a country is capable of ensuring the safety of its airspace, it will feel more secure. And those who might have intentions to attack this country will think twice."

    "When the political situation in the world is tense, every country tries to ensure its security and, of course, to ensure the safety of its airspace. That is why the demand for missile defense systems is high. Many countries would like to buy such systems, and we have many orders," Chemezov added.
