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.
