Two overhauled MIG 29 aircraft, which Serbia purchased from Russia, made a test flight from the airport in Batajnica yesterday, in the presence of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

Pristina's media closely followed this event, and some estimated that it was a provocation and a fueling of tensions in the Balkans.
- This reinforcement of weapons, including two combat Russian planes, can fuel tensions in the Balkans, and the fact that the MIGs have arrived from Russia points to the strengthening of Moscow's influence in the region - reports Lajmifundit.
To recall, President Vucic, who attended the first flight of "powerful wings of Serbia", thanked the President of Russia Vladimir Putin for the support and development of the Serbian armed forces, Minister Shoigu and Russian experts who helped, as he said, to strengthen the combat readiness of our army.
- We show how much Serbia has strengthened and advanced - said Vucic.
Vucic said that we expect a donation of 30 modern tanks, which are significant because they have a stronger armor and they are faster than ours. When asked about the procurement of two more MIGs and helicopters from Belarus, he said that it will be done in the following period, explaining that it is a donation, and "we are just overhauling them".
He pointed out that Serbia has much to celebrate this year, to show the results.
- Serbia is proud of its results and is proud of its friendship. Unlike others, we do not hide them - explained Vucic.
