Erdogan says Turkey tested Russian S-400s, shrugs off U.S. reaction

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan confirmed on Friday that Turkey had been testing the S-400 air defense system it bought from Russia, adding that the objection from NATO ally United States on the issue did not matter.

Washington says Ankara’s purchase of Russian S-400 systems compromise NATO defenses and has threatened sanctions. An apparent firing test of the S-400s test last week prompted a furious response from the State Department and Pentagon.
