ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. The S-300 anti-aircraft missile system that Russia made for Syria may be offered to other foreign customers, deputy head of the manufacturer Almaz-Antey Vyacheslav Dzirkaln said on Friday. No decision on the system’s scrapping has been made, he added.

“The decision has not been made yet. The system has been manufactured, its fate is undetermined,” Dzirkaln said, adding that the system might be offered to other foreign customers.

He said that deputy head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Co-operation Konstantin Biryulin had disproved Monday’s media allegations that the system would be scrapped.

“He [Biryulin] did not confirm that the system will be definitely scrapped,” Dzirkaln said.

The Almaz-Antey deputy head said if the manufacturer takes the decision to deliver this system to another customer, the equipment set will not be changed. “This is the export version, and if the decision is taken it would be reasonable to offer this system to our partners without alterations,” he said.

In late July, Konstantin Biryulin did not rule out that the S-300 air defense missile systems the delivery of which to Syria was suspended, might be disassembled and partially scrapped. “The system cannot stay without use for such a long time. As there are no decisions and progress in this sphere, so the scraping decision must be made,” he told ITAR-TASS.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in autumn 2013 said the delivery of the S-300 system to Syria was suspended. According to him, separate units of the system were delivered to the country.
