"The advance payment has been made. I do not want to specify the exact figure but we do have the advance payment. We have already launched the production, work is in progress and it will be carried out in compliance with the schedule. The contract will be fulfilled by 2025," Chemezov said.

India announced its plans to purchase Russian-made S-400 systems in 2015. The relevant contract worth 5.43 billion dollars was signed during a visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to India in 2018.
