Russia has not received any requests from Iran for delivering its S-400 air defence systems, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov told on Friday.
“No,” Borisov said when asked whether Moscow had received a relevant request from Iran.
“Let them continue spreading [fake news],” Borisov said when asked to comment on the media speculations.
“Everything goes as it goes,” the minister commented on cooperation between Russia and Iran.
In late-May, Bloomberg reported, citing its sources, that Russia had refused to sell Iran its S-400 air defence systems. According to the agency, Russia explained its decision by saying that such a move would escalate tensions in the region.
Commenting on the report, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he did not have information about the alleged refusal.
