Russia delivered a fresh shipment of advanced air defense equipment to Turkey on Saturday continuing to implement a deal that is likely to trigger U.S. sanctions against a NATO ally.

Turkish Defence Ministry said a fourth Russian cargo plane landed at the Murted air base near Ankara, a day after three huge Russian air force AN-124 planes offloaded equipment at the base.

Earlier, Washington has tried to prevent the deal saying Russian S-400 air defense system is incompatible with NATO systems.
