Subscribe
Russia celebrates the Air Defense Forces day on the second Sunday of April. The forces have existed for more than 100 years. In 1914, the Russian Empire created its first units to counter German and Austrian airplanes during World War I. In 2015, the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces and Air Force were merged to form the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The objective of Russia's air defense forces is to protect the country and important objects from enemy aircraft and missiles. Take a look at some of the most advanced air defense vehicles in modern Russia and the everyday work of the servicemen.
