Russia is marking the 100th anniversary of its air force with an aviation parade and parachute drop at the Zhukovsky airfield outside of Moscow.

Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev opened the celebrations and noted that 69 foreign countries had sent delegations to the event.

Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a statement saying that "the development of military aviation is the priority of the country's military policy."

He promised on August 11 that the air force will receive over 600 new combat planes and 1,000 helicopters by 2020 as part of a $720 billion military-reequipment effort.

Congratulations to all the Russian pilots! And one, of course, can only be happy to see that the Russian govt is increasing investment in its military aviation: as the latest events in Syria show, the Russian combat troops need to stay alert in order to give a helping hand to those suffering from the imperialist agression of the nation of Beavus and Butthead (financed with the Saudi money, given that Beavuses and Buttheads themselves are on the verge of a bankruptcy).

Eugenio, you are back. That's great news for both of us, as I need your help to defeat the Sunni Wahhabi peaceful activists. I can't defeat them in real life as I am a disabled Serbian war veteran, but I can defeat them in cyberspace by complaining about them all day.

You can't defeat us in real life or cyberspace, so why do you keep trying?

Aaaah,we all thought there was no rest for the wicked ,but the EU Genius went on a vacation and we were left miserable with only Jack`s wisdom to brighten our days.But now the good old EU is back with a vengeance and thanks to him,or rather it we all know what`s what,where its at and may we all wish the great russian pilots to fly the austrian genius to the moon or rather to Mars-the red planet with a one way ticket and eshuzavak Jack for good company.We badly need somebody to keep up the Rot Front there as the bloody imperialists are gonna colonize it before we order the next round of vodka or schnappes.

Thank you, Camel, thank you, Konstantin, yes, the vacation was very nice: I went to Odessa and to the Crimea - nice places, lots of sun and warm sea! And I see you, guys, were not wasting your time and were - as usual - being active on this marvelous forum. Of course, you, guys, are glad I am back - you can always count on my reglemäsige contributions to the discussion here :-)). Cheers from Vienna!

Eugenio, lying again about me?
I only write under my name!
Is it you went to Los Angeles to organize murder of my mother,
as part of "Russkaya such'ya komandirovka" against honest people, 7/7/2012?
Lying about me that I am friend with two Russian "Rot Front"
idiots, including Jack?
Is it how you and your Russian KGB bloodsuckers convinced
CIA, also staffed by Russians, kill my mother?
Avanging for my freedom of speech here, on Forums?
Is it you stealing some of my messages and messing with my
email alert system, so I wouldn't know that you
lying about me?
