There is no risk of sanctions for the S-300 anti-missile system located in Crete, the State Department clarified.

Responding to a related question from the Hellas Journal website, a representative of the US Department of State explained that the presence of the system in Greece does not fall under the sanctions provided for by the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

“The acquisition of S-300s by Greece took place in the 1990s, decades before the adoption of the CAATSA law. Section 231 of the CAATSA Act imposes only significant transactions that occurred on or after August 2, 2017,” a State Department spokesperson said.
“We continue to encourage all NATO allies to ensure full interoperability within the alliance,” the spokesperson added.
