Russia says U.S. trying to undermine deal on S-400 supplies to India

MOSCOW — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday a deal to supply India with S-400 air defense missile systems was being implemented despite what he said were U.S. efforts to undermine the accord.

Speaking at a news conference in India, Lavrov said India had made clear that it was a sovereign country.

The deal with Moscow puts India at risk of sanctions from the United States under a 2017 U.S. law aimed at deterring countries from buying Russian military hardware. (Reporting by Andrew Osborn; Writing by Alexander Marrow Editing by Gareth Jones)
