Military aircraft


Iraq allowed the Russian VKS fly through its airspace

Iraq has opened its airspace to Russian VKS.

On the eve of the day, the authorities of Iraq officially allowed Russian military aircraft to fly through the territory of the country to attack the positions of militants of the terrorist group "Islamic State". In turn, it is important to note the fact that obtaining an appropriate permit from the Iraqi authorities will ensure greater effectiveness for the operation of Russian military aircraft, while the representatives of the country themselves say that this is due solely to the personal initiative of the government, since there has been no request from the Russian military .

In turn, it is important to clarify the fact that the representatives of the United States reacted very negatively to such a move by the government of Iraq.
