Serbia’s Defense Ministry said the country is expecting a shipment of six Russian MiG-29 fighter jets “soon,” as well as the arrival of Russian aviation experts to help upgrade the arriving jets along with those already in use.

Earlier this month, the Serbian Defense Ministry said the country is expecting the fighter jets to be delivered from Russia in March or, at the very latest, April.


Belgrade expects that after modernizing them, the MiGs will begin service as part of the 204th brigade by 2018, Tanjug news agency reported last week, citing the ministry.
