The exercises, which involve dozens of combat vehicles – airplanes and helicopters, will last until October 16.
According to the Political Navigator, the joint Russian-Serbian air military exercises “The Brotherhood of Aviators of Russia and Serbia” (BARS) will be held at the Batainitsa and Ladzhevtsy airfields, as well as at the Posulianska Livada training ground. The maneuvers will be attended by MIG-29 aircraft, air defense systems, as well as, for the first time, Mi-35 helicopters.
“As part of the exercise, joint Russian-Serbian crews on MiG-29 fighters will practice combat maneuvering and air combat as part of a pair and perform attacks on low-speed targets,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.
“The Mi-8 and Mi-35 helicopters will be used for landing and evacuation, complex aerobatics, combat use and other tasks. Before the start of the exercises, Russian pilots were trained in aviation terminology and phraseology of radio exchange in Serbian”.
The exercises, which have already become a good tradition, have been held annually, starting in 2015, and are held alternately in Serbian and Russian territories.Hungary supports the Polish demarche on the EU
