The combat training of Russian pilots and the system designed to train cadets has been adjusted taking into account the experience gained by the Russian military in Syria, the commander in chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Viktor Bondarev, said.

Bondarev noted that due to the experience gained in Syria the forces have learnt "new methods of striking ground targets."

"This is an invaluable experience, we cherish it and will apply it in the future," he said.

He also said that the modernization of the military reconnaissance system continues and recently the Russian Aerospace Forces received more than 100 aircraft and about 300 helicopters.

Bondarev stressed that even today Russian pilots are present in the skies of Syria and are instituting a constitutional order and fulfilling the international duty.

"Thanks to the Russian Aerospace Forces order will be put in place. The backbone of international banditry will be broken," he said.

He further said that the pilots make history with their military work and dedication.
