Kremlin comments on refusal to deliver S-300s to Syria

The refusal to deliver S-300s air defense missile systems to Syria is not linked in any way with the recent visit by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Moscow, acting Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
Peskov thus commented on a statement by acting Russian presidential aide for military and technical cooperation Vladimir Kozhin made in an interview with Izvestia newspaper.
“Technologically, it is absolutely wrong to link this [Kozhin’s words] with Netanyahu’s visit because the interview was given before Netanyahu’s visit,” the acting Kremlin spokesman said.
