    The Russian Defence Ministry has published footage of the landings of Su-34 fighter-bombers and An-26 transport aircraft on an under-construction highway in Tatarstan; carried out as part of special exercises on material and technical support in the Central Military District.

    The video shows the aircraft landing, refuelling and their subsequent take-offs.
    In total, twelve Su-34s and two An-26s were involved in the training, and the under-construction Europe-Western China highway was used as a runway.
    The military deployed a mobile airfield, equipped with ammunition, fuel and lubricant depots, as well as all the necessary infrastructure on sections of the highway.
