A group of US congressmen introduced a new bill to the Senate. It bans the sale of the F-35 fighter-bombers to Turkey, unless Turkey refuses to buy the S-400 systems from Russia — Interfax reported while citing ‘The Hill’. The bill was developed by 4 senators — 2 Democrats and 2 Republicans. It says that before selling the F-35 to Turkey — the US administration should make sure that Ankara refused to buy the S-400s. In early March, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that Ankara will complete the deal on the purchase of the S-400s. It is assumed that the deployment of the S-400 AA systems in Turkey will begin in October of 2019.
