RYAZAN, July 27. /TASS/. Russia has no plans to deploy Tu-22M3 bombers in Crimea, Russian Air Force Commander Colonel General Viktor Bondarev said on Monday.
"So far, no such tasks have been set. If we do have such tasks we will be obliged to fulfil them," he told journalists when asked about possible deployment of Tu-22M3 bombers in Crimea.
Bondarev said Russia had enough warplanes in Crimea "to ensure clear blue sky over us."
According to earlier reports, ten Tu-22M3 bombers were temporarily deployed in Crimea during a surprise combat readiness check this spring.
