WikiLeaks: Russia demanded technology for annulment of S-300 deal

A billion dollars and the cancelation of a missile deal with Iran – these were the things Russia promised Israel in return for advanced technology on drones, according to a secret cable leaked by WikiLeaks.

 

Under-Secretary of State Ellen Tauscher, whose name is signed on the cable, got the information from Amos Gilad, the head of the Defense Ministry's Policy and Political-Military Affairs, in 2009. The cable was sent a year before the Kremlin announced the deal would be annulled. (Ynet)
