    "and in Ukraine they were generally frightened."
    "Let them lykayutsya". Until the transition to "bear disease" from the roar of turbojet engines.
    One Ukrainian politician, Saakashvili, was also afraid of them ... In 2008.

    patrolling the borders of the Union State will be held on an ongoing basis

    It is from this principle that one must always adhere to, regardless of any concentrations there.

    These are the "dryers" that were removed from the VVO and relocated
    to Belarus for maneuvers?

    I think, to overtake aircraft from air defense for maneuvers,
    to put it mildly, unreasonable.

    Pilots can also train in Primorye,
    and the combat capability of the Air Defense Forces would remain at the level.

    My opinion, of course.

      No, these are those that are located in the Republic of Belarus. For the exercises, the Su-35S were transferred.
