"The key feature of this visit will be the signing of the agreement to deliver S-400 air defence systems", Putin's top foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said, according to news agency AFP.

According to sources, there's another deal in motion as well where India might purchase four frigates from Russian Federation during Putin's upcoming visit. As of October 1, however, the Indian government has not publicly confirmed that the CCS approved the $5.5 billion acquisition. We let him go.

Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who was on an official visit to Kazakhstan and Krgystan till Oct 6, cut short her visit to attend the India-Russia summit, said an official familiar with the development.

In response, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the USA was terminating the Treaty of Amity with Iran - a 1955 agreement to improve economic relations between the two countries. India will be purchasing five S-400 Triumf missile air defence systems. "We shall maintain it in all earnestness", Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman told PTI recently when asked whether the United States sanctions will hit India's defence ties with Russian Federation.

Russian Federation said in April it expected to sign a deal with India this year on the sale of the S-400.
