    According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, there are many young women who want to become military pilots. “We receive hundreds of letters [from them],” he told journalists in on August 12.

    After numerous requests, the Russian Air Force will begin training female military pilots for the first time since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Starting October 1, 15 girls will start their course at the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School.

    For the first time in its history, the Russian aviation school in Krasnodar will enroll female students to train them as military pilots.
