Russia has delivered a new batch of Sukhoi Su-25 strike fighters to Iraq.

“A batch of Su-25 (three aircraft) has arrived in Iraq in accordance with the contract signed with the Russian side,” spokesman for the Iraqi Defense Ministry Nasir Nouri Mohammed al-Tamimi was quoted as saying by Tass Monday.

The spokesman also said that the attack aircraft would enter service in the near future. According to him, this will give additional advantage to the Iraqi army in the fight against terrorist groups, including the Islamic State (terrorist group banned in Russia).
