The USA offered Turkey the choice between S-400 and sanctions — Rambler News Service

"If the president (Turkey Recep) Erdogan insists on acquisition of the C-400 antimissile system and completion of its purchase and installation, then sanctions on the basis of the legislation which I originally entered will be inflicted. And these sanctions will be obligatory. We do not want it, and we offered other options of Turkey. S-400 system is incompatible with architecture of NATO" — Menendez told. Besides, senator also excluded a possibility of delivery to Turkey of the American F-35 fighters in case of expansion of S-400 there. "In this case there are no chances to receive F-35. They will be punished on the basis of the American law which provides sanctions for any who buys weapon systems from Russia. If we have F-35 near S-400, Russia will be able to learn all secrets of technology of this plane" — he added. In December, 2017 Turkey signed the contract with Russia for delivery of S-400 complexes. Such step caused concern in Washington: in June, 2018 the Assistant US Secretary of State Wes Mitchell said a possibility of imposition of sanctions against Turkey and also that placement of S-400 will have irreversible consequences for cooperation between Washington and Ankara in the military sphere. S-400 — the Russian antiaircraft missile system, is intended for destruction of all modern and perspective means of aerospace attack.
