"We are creating a special service center in Iran, to which we have supplied our air defense systems," Kozhin said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 TV channel.
The cooperation on establishing service centers will develop in the future, the presidential aide added.

The contract to deliver Russian-made S-300 surface-to-air missile systems to Iran was signed in 2007. In 2011, Iran sued Russia in the Geneva Arbitration Court after Moscow suspended the contract the year prior, citing a UN Security Council resolution that placed an arms embargo on Tehran.

In April 2015, Russia resumed talks on S-300 deliveries following a framework agreement on the landmark deal ensuring the peaceful nature of Tehran’s nuclear program.

In July, the Iranian Air Force confirmed that the S-300s had assumed combat duty.
