The United States has warned India against a planned purchase of S-400 surface-to-air missiles from Russian Federation when President Vladimir Putin visits New Delhi this week, saying such an acquisition would attract sanctions under US law.

India and Russian Federation are likely to sign about 20 pacts in areas ranging from defence, nuclear energy, space and economy during Russia's President Vladimir Putin's two-day visit to India from Thursday.

Notably, according to a defense source speaking to The Hindustan Times, the contract will not contain an offset clause in order to expedite delivery of the S-400 air defense systems.

The S-400 is known as Russia's most advanced long-range surface-to-air missile defence system, capable of destroying cruise, ballistic missiles.

Signals from Washington last week seemed to bear out the optimism of Ambassador Sajjanhar on a waiver to enable India to continue trade relations with Iran.

Moreover, the Pentagon has warned India that the purchase would violate USA sanctions against Russia's military that went into effect this year.

Back in July this year, India's defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the S-400 Triumf air defence missile deal with Russian Federation will go ahead notwithstanding the USA sanctions on military transactions with Moscow. The sale proceedings have gone forward, however, with Doha calling the purchase its "sovereign" decision.

Here is all you need to know about the anticipated S-400 defence deal between India and Russian Federation. "That's that", he told a panel discussion at an energy forum. The US is now India's second biggest arms supplier.

Global regional forums, cultural and people-to-people contact, counter-terrorism, energy security, Syria, science and technology and civil nuclear cooperation are also likely to be on the meet's agenda, according to a India Today report.

Besides holding talks with Modi, the Russian president will also have a meeting with president Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhawan on Friday.

"India has maintained its sovereignty as regards to its relationship with countries".

Also on the agenda is Russian training for Indian astronauts as New Delhi aims to launch its first crewed space mission in 2022. He will attend the 19th India-Russia Annual Bilateral Summit in New Delhi.

Moscow is also pushing for India's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group of countries controlling access to nuclear technology.

More than 20 agreements are expected to be signed during Putin's visit in areas such as defence, space and economy.
