Russia has suspended the delivery of S-300 missile systems to Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed in an interview on Wednesday, AFP reported.

Over the weekend, Russian newspaper Kommersant reported the shipping of the S-300 missile systems, that were expected to be delivered by July 2014, have been delayed until 2015-2016 because Damascus has failed to provide payment for them.

“Supplies of S-300 are out of question until we see real money,” an unnamed source at the Russian military-industrial cooperation complex toldKommersant.

Putin told Russia’s First Channel that some components of the S-300 systems were delivered to Syria, but that the rest would be delayed until Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime pays for them.
