    "This was a shining example of the fact that our armament and military equipment meets the highest requirements in the arms market," Koshkin told Sputnik.

    On Monday, President Putin said Russian forces were returning home victorious. Days before, Moscow declared victory over Daesh in Syria after a two-year-long operation.
