    Russia’s new Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets carried out military exercises near the Kuril Islands in the west Pacific Ocean to drill air action, Eastern Military District’s spokesman Alexander Gordeyev said early Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Gordeyev emphasized in a statement that combat training was pre-planned and complied with international regulations.

    "During training flights pilots performed several elements of advances aerobatics, piloting at maximum and minimum heights and drilled above-the-water air action," said the military spokesman of the Eastern District based in the Khabarovsk region.

    Gordeyev emphasized in a statement that combat training was pre-planned and complied with international regulations.
