In Belarus, landing exercises are being held at five military airfields with the involvement of Russian pilots.
This was reported by gordonua.com with reference to Belarusian Telegram channels.
“In Belarus, there is an increase in air training at five airfields at once, pilots from the Russian Federation have arrived, and landing drills have begun. […] A noticeable increase in the number of exercises at the military airfields in Baranavichy, Machulishchy, Lida, Luninets and Babruisk is being recorded,” the message says.
In particular, in Baranavichy, “fighter jet pilots are practicing takeoffs with combat equipment, a sharp start and a high-speed climb,” and also “training landings of a Mi-8 helicopter of the Belarusian Air Force are periodically taking place at the airfield.”
“Usually, such exercises are held a couple of times a year, but in three weeks their annual norm has already been exceeded. In addition, about 20 pilots from the Russian Federation arrived in Baranavichy. They arrived in the city in the morning of July 7 on a regular Moscow-Brest train. Moreover, “This is not the first report that the Russian military has again begun to arrive in Belarus on ordinary passenger trains. There is a certain correlation between the arrival of the Russian military and an increase in the number of air exercises,” the report says.
