Some western friendly, maybe NATO country needs to buy a Soviet, er... Russian S-400 system and allow it to be completely examined by western engineers. No system could remain viable after such an examination as it would reveal the ways to overcome all its abilities and shut it down. My personal approach would be to send cheap drones until no more missiles remain. If they stop the system from responding to the drones, the locations provided by the prior drones become the next wave of drones targets.Visual recognition is cheap. Drones can be smart and minimize collateral damage.
