Russia Today (RT) has reported that Russia suspended the delivery of the SAM-system (surface-to-air missile) Type S-300 missiles to Syria.

It was not known before, that there was a contract for the supply of such systems to Syria.

The information, that it is apparently like this, comes from the annual report 2011 of the engineering plant Nizhny Novgorod, where the S-300 surface-to-air missiles are assembled.

Quote from this annual report (Page 13):

At present, more than 10 contracts are for the supply of products and services at the stage of implementation. The largest of these are contracts for the supply of S-300 systems to Algeria – Contract volume of 39 million U.S. dollars – and Syria – Contract volume of 105 million U.S. dollars. These products should be delivered in the course of the year 2012 to the beginning of the year 2013.
