Serbia, the only remaining Russian ally in the region despite its proclaimed goal of joining the European Union, has already received six MiG-29 fighter jets from Russia and expects the delivery of additional attack and transport helicopters and battle tanks by the end of this year.

Belgrade has pledged to stay out of NATO and refused to join Western sanctions against Russia over Ukraine.

Serbian military analyst Aleksandar Radic said that by deploying S-400 system to Serbia, Moscow is sending a political message to the West and NATO.

"Russia wants to underline its presence in the region and is saying it will defend its European stronghold," Radic said. "Serbia is at NATO's back and that is very important to Moscow."

In order to reach Serbia, the Russian missiles had to be flown over airspace of neighboring NATO-member countries, which will likely raise questions from the Western alliance.

This summer, NATO-member Romania banned the river transport of Russian armored vehicles to Serbia. Russia then flew them over NATO member Hungary by declaring the flight civilian transport. This time, it is believed Russian transport planes flew over NATO member Bulgaria.

The sale of S-400 to NATO-member Turkey triggered controversy earlier this year. In response, Washington kicked Turkey out of the F-35 stealth fighter project, saying the S-400 could be used by Russia to collect information on how to defeat the jet.
