The CRS report is not an official report of the US Congress
This report has been prepared for the members of Congress to take deliberate decisions. It warns that India’s restrictions on India under the ‘Counting America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act’ (Laws to Combat Enemies Through Restrictions) due to India’s billions of dollars to buy Russia-made S-400 air defense system.

Deal even after Trump administration warningIn October 2018, India signed a five billion dollar deal with Russia to buy four S-400s even after the Trump administration warned. The Trump administration warned that doing so could put American sanctions on India. India paid Russia the first installment of $ 80 million in 2019 for this missile system.
The S-400 is known as Russia’s most advanced long-range surface-to-surface missile. Last month, Russia said that despite the threat of US sanctions, the current defense deals, including the supply of the first batch of the S-400 missile system, are being implemented.
Last month, Russian Ambassador Nikolay Kudashev in New Delhi seemed to criticize US sanctions on Turkey over the purchase of the S-400 missile system under a two-and-a-half billion dollar deal, saying Russia does not recognize such unilateral actions.
