It consists of several squadrons of long-distance bombers deployed in the Eastern and Central military districts,” a Defense Ministry representative told the newspaper.

It will be already the second heavy bomber air group in the Russian Aerospace Forces after a division of Tu-160, Tu-95MS and Tu-22M3 bombers that have been so successful mopping up terrorists in Syria, was added last year. The newly-formed division will include dozens of strategic and long-range bombers to be deployed in Irkutsk and Amur regions.
