Vladimir Shamanov, head of the Defence Committee of the Russi’ State Duma, has advised Saudi Arabia to replace US Patriot air defense systems with Russian S-400 or S-300 systems.
In a press statement on Tuesday, Shamanov said that US Patriot systems are inferior to the Russian weapons and that is a fair assessment of the capacity of their systems.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered a proposal for Saudi Arabia to buy the S-300 or S-400 Russian air defense systems that are capable of defending any kind of infrastructure in Saudi Arabia of any type of attack after the deadly attacks on the state-owned oil and gas company, Aramco on 14 September.
Putin is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia in the coming days, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
