Russian Air Force Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Mikhailov has promised to provide air security on May 9
"All security measures will be reliable. Today we held exercises involving all means needed for Russia's air security," he said. The commander denied the information that antiaircraft guns would be placed on some skyscrapers in Moscow. I did not give such orders, Mikhailov noted. If necessary, the Russian Air Force can use battle planes to accompany liners carrying foreign guests who are invited to VE Day celebrations, he said. In his opinion, this is not necessary. Mikhailov is convinced that weather will permit battle planes to fly above Red Square in Moscow during the parade on May 9. According to him, planes of the Russian Air Force will disperse clouds above Moscow on May 7-9. However, it does not gives a 100% guarantee of fine weather, he added. The air force will do its best to prevent showers in Moscow on Victory Day, Vladimir Mikhailov stressed. In his words, weather will permit planes to fly. Four MiG-29 planes and five Su-27 planes will form a rhomb above Red Square, the commander said. Moreover, three Su-25 planes will emit colored smoke and draw the Russian flag, Mikhailov reported adding that no aerobatic flights should be expected on May 9. Experienced pilots of the assault aviation regiment will fly the planes, he emphasized
