Saudi Arabia plans to conclude a contract for the supply of Russian electronic warfare systems "Krasukha-4“
The ruler of Saudi Arabia and the head of the country's Defense Ministry, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, plans to conclude a deal with Moscow to purchase 3-4 advanced Krasukha-4 electronic warfare systems.
With the help of the Krasukha-4 complexes, the Saudis will defend against missile attacks from the Yemeni Houthi rebels on strategic military and civilian facilities in Saudi Arabia.
The presence of such weapons became especially important after the Americans withdrew their Patriot and THAAD missile defense systems from the country. In this regard, the authorities of Saudi Arabia decided to discuss the issue of purchasing the S-400 Triumph air defense system from the Russian Federation. They are very much feared at the Pentagon. The United States immediately begins to threaten with sanctions all countries that are trying to buy complexes.
