Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu said on the 73rd anniversation of the liberation of Belgrade from Nazi Germany that Russia will honor its promise of delivering six Mikoyan MiG-29 fighters to Serbia.

“In August, when you were in Moscow, I promised that by the time of this celebration the planes will arrive in Belgrade, Shoigu said.  

“The planes are now in Belgrade. I am sure that they will serve as a reliable shield and a guarantor of Serbia’s independence and security,” Shoigu continued.

His Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vulin thanked Russia for the delivery.

“Thanks to this, we can say that today we have a possibility to defend our sky,” Vulin told his Russian counterpart.

“I want to thank you personally, dear minister because I know how many efforts and much labor were needed to do all this. Thank you that today you are participating in this celebration together with us,” the Serbian defense minister said.
