Russia may be planning to deliver MiG-29 fighter jets to Serbia, according to a source in the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia is considering possibly delivering air defense systems and MiG-29 fighter jets to Serbia, a source in the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) said Wednesday.

'We are working on the issue of deliveries of air defense systems and MiG-29s to Serbia. This country is our strategic partner in Europe, in many spheres, including military-technical cooperation,' the source told RIA Novosti.

Last month, the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported that Serbia was hoping to buy Russian-made Tor, Pantsir, and Buk air defense systems as well as MiG-29s.

The Serbian Defense Ministry has reportedly submitted a detailed list of the weapons and spare parts it would like to purchase to the FSMTC.
