Russia bans S-300 sale to Iran 23, September 2010

Russia has formally announced that it will not sell Iran its advanced S-300 missile defence system. Despite initially obfuscating whether they would sell them or not, given the latest round of U.N. sanctions, President Medvedev has banned their sale. This must also mean that the more advanced S-400 will not be sold to Iran either.

Not receiving these supplies is a blow to Iran’s air defense systems, leaving their critical sites relatively undefended given the technologically advanced American and Israeli aircraft. Iran are instead continuing work on their own IR-300 defense systems though their effectiveness and date of operation is unknown (to me at least).
