Turkey has reached a deal, worth around $2.9 billion, with Russia to acquire their most advanced missile defense system. This new deal signals a turn away from the NATO military alliance. The preliminary agreement will see that Turkey receives two S-400 missile batteries from Russia within the next year, and then producing another two inside the country.

Turkey reached the point of an agreement on a missile defense system before, only to scrap the deal later amid protests and condemnation from NATO. Under pressure from the US, Turkey gave up an earlier plan to buy a similar missile-defense system from a state-run Chinese company, which had been sanctioned by the US for allegedly selling missiles to Iran.
