The first shipment of a Russian missile defense system has arrived in Turkey, the Turkish Defense Ministry said Friday, moving the country closer to possible U.S. sanctions and a new standoff with Washington. A Defense Ministry statement said 'the first group of equipment' of the S-400 air defense systems has reached the Murted Air Base near the capital, Ankara. The delivery of parts of the system will continue in the coming days and authorities will decide 'how it will be used' once the system is made operational, Turkey's defense industry authority said in a statement.
