      Not only echoes ... but rather is a continuation of a unified system of training air defense forces ...
      ... "Far from God and sciences, God created Ashaluk! ..." Indeed, a STEEP SCHOOL for military training, ... 4 times, along with 270 zrp (now disbanded Dill) "had the good fortune" to be there ... like and according to the inspection of the Ministry of Defense in January 1980 in Sary-Paris! Much has already been erased from memory ... but the calls to the firing range are NOT FORGOTTEN! And from the emotional side ... and with the benefit for the professional growth of combat crews!

    NATO in the Baltic States four fighters, we are air defense exercises. So let the Balts (and the United States) scratch their turnips, but are all these ostentatious attempts worthwhile to annoy Russia at least somehow under the false pretext of possible aggression.
