Russia to Give Serbia Transport Aircraft Alongside MiG Jets
In the framework of military aid to Serbia Russia will deliver fighter jets as well as transport aircraft, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Rogozin told Sputnik on Sunday.
In December 2016, then Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic announced that Belgrade was planning to receive six Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter jets, as well as 30 T-72S tanks and 30 BRDM-2 armored scout vehicles, as part of a Russian military aid package.
"Not only MiG [aircraft]. There will be many things there. Tanks, transport aircraft. It will be great to help a friend," Rogozin said in an interview.
On Thursday, Rogozin arrived in the Serbian capital of Belgrade to participate in the inauguration ceremony of President Aleksandar Vucic, which took place on Friday.
