Russia delayed deliveries of the last 3 regiments of the S-400 due to delays in payment from the Indian side which due to economic transactions by the western prevented the usage of the American-backed SWIFT payment system for transactions with Russia.
India and Russia have still not found ways to settle payments but after assurance coming from the highest levels deliveries were resumed as both countries might link arms payment to other deals or make payments in Chinese yuan.
