ASHULUK TESTING GROUND, Astrakhan region, September 10. /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has praised the activity of participant in the joint Air Force war games Combat Commonwealth 2015.
"The codename of these war games, the Combat Commonwealth, speaks for itself and reflects the willingness of our Armed Forces to cooperate with one another and pool efforts in defending the aerial borders of the Commonwealth of Independent States," Shoigu said at a ceremony where awards were given to participants in the maneuvers.
He said the combat crews engaged in the exercise had demonstrated their skills, smoothness of operations and perfect professional training in practical assignments.
