Comments from Turkish journalists on Twitter:
Quite ironic, that Turkey will test the S-400 off the Black Sea, right next to the territory of Russia.
For reference: CAATSA - US sanctions package, which provides restrictions for a particular country, which has contacts with Russia in the military-technical sphere.
