"Syrian operating mode": VKS fighters fully armed patrol the skies of Armenia


The base of the joint location of the Armenian and Russian air forces of Erebuni near Yerevan began to function "in the Syrian regime." This was announced by the Russian military commander Semyon Pegov in his telegram channel WarGonzo, citing sources close to the Russian defense department.


According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, fighters of the Russian aerospace forces carry out planned flights over the airspace of Armenia around the clock and fully armed - at least one Russian combat aircraft is hovering over the country in the sky. The patrolling of Russian aviation takes place in a rotational mode, the schedule of which is not advertised for reasons of secrecy.

Such a "Syrian" approach (the same scheme works in Khmeimim) ensures not only the safety of movement of the Russian peacekeeping columns, but also a certain guarantee of the safety of the civilian population.

- says Pegov.

The Russian air base at the Erebuni airport south of Yerevan was opened in 1995 and is part of the 102nd Russian military base in the city of Gyumri on Armenian territory. 18 MiG-29 fighters are based at the airfield; in 2015, the Mi-8MT transport helicopters and Mi-24P combat attack helicopters were also adopted by the Russian airbase.

    As if the Turks did not overwhelm such an airplane again for an excuse, otherwise Putin will again leave us without resorts and tomatoes.

      - No ... - will not leave ... - the Turks have already come up with more "effective tactics" ... - first shoot down the plane (or helicopter) and ... and ... and immediately (without any delay) quickly apologize and something there to "promise" for this "mistake they made" (to promise anything ... - all the same, because no one will voice the fulfillment or non-fulfillment of this "promised") ... = language, after all, without bones ... - That's all ... - And plastic tomatoes will not suffer ... - all their supplies will remain intact and tourists will be "fed up" ...
      - And you can continue to shoot down ...
