RAW: Hero’s welcome for Russian pilots returning from Syria

A large crowd gathered at an airbase near the Voronezh region in the south of European Russia on Tuesday, to welcome the first group of Russian Air Force pilots returning from Syria.

Upon landing, the pilots were welcomed with the traditional greeting of bread and salt.

Moscow will still maintain two key points of its military presence — the Hmeimim air base and the naval base in the port city of Tartus — to monitor the cease-fire between Assad’s forces and his opponents.
