A Russian diplomatic source on Wednesday corroborated an Iranian report earlier in the week which claimed that Moscow will supply four batteries of S-300 surface-to-air missiles to the Islamic Republic sometime this year.

According to the RIA Novosti news agency, a source in Russia's Foreign Ministry said that the deal would go ahead "this year for sure."

"What was in the contract, that's how many will be," the source said.
