"Long-range supersonic bombers practiced laying mines in maritime zones after a long interruption," Kobylash said.

"The Tu-22M3 long-range supersonic bombers practiced dropping mines in the Sea of Okhotsk from an altitude of 3,000-4,000 meters during a joint exercise with Pacific Fleet units,"
he added. According to the commander, this year is unique for the Long-Range Aviation.

"The talk is about launches of cruise missiles. The majority of the flight personnel of Tu-160 [Blackjack] and Tu-95MS [Bear] planes, including novice flight crews, have acquired relevant skills,"
the commander said.

During the Russian-Tajik combined command and staff exercise, Tu-22M3 bombers landed onto the Gesar high-mountain airfield and dropped bombs at the Kharb-Maidon training range for the first time.
