On Monday, Russia announced it has lifted its self-imposed ban on shipping S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran. The missiles had signed a deal in 2007 worth roughly $800 million to transfer a S-300 surface-to-air missile installation to Iran, but the U.S. and Israel successfully lobbied Russia to kill the deal, arguing that the system could protect Iran’s nuclear facilities from attack.

 

In 2010, then-President Dmitri Medvedev issued an order banning Russian S-300 missiles from being delivered to Iran. But on Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “At this stage, we believe the need for this kind of embargo, and a separate voluntary Russian embargo, has completely disappeared. I note that the S-300 air-defense missile system, which is exclusively of a defensive nature, is not suited for the purposes of attack and doesn’t threaten the security of any governments in the region, including, of course, Israel.” He added that U.N. sanctions don’t prevent the delivery of air-defense weapons to Iran. More
