Russia has suspended the delivery of S-300 missile systems and fighter jets to Syria, because Damascus has failed to provide payment for them, Russian newspaper Kommersant reported Saturday.

“Supplies of S-300 are out of question until we see real money,” an unnamed source at the Russian military-industrial cooperation complex told Kommersant.

Shipping of the S-300 missile systems, that were expected to be delivered by July 2014, would be delayed until 2015-2016 unless the Assad regime produces payment for them soon, the newspaper reported.

Additionally, 12 MiG-29M/M2 jets will not be supplied to Syria before 2016-2017.
