MOSCOW, January 1. /TASS/. Russian fighter jets Sukhoi Su-27 will continue to be on combat duty at airbases in Belarus, chief press officer in Western Military District Colonel Oleg Kochetkov told reporters.
First shift of Russian pilots went on combat service at the Baranovichi airfield in December 2013. Twenty-four Russian crews were on combat duty in Belarusian skies in 2014.
“As in the previous year crews of fighter jets Su-27 will be on combat service at Belarusian airbases jointly with Belarusian crews of fighter jets MiG-29,” Kochetkov said.
He noted that pilots from the Western Military District had made around 300 training and combat flights in joint combat service in 2014.
