It is time to recall the famous Internet meme “Voronezh will be bombed”, which vividly describes the relationship between domestic and foreign policy of modern Russia.
The Russian Izvestia media outlet, citing sources in the Russian Defense Ministry, reported that the 47th Composite Air Regiment, equipped with Su-34 bombers, is planned to be relocated to the city of Voronezh in October. The plan is to transfer these bombers to the airfield with an unusual for Russia name “Baltimore”, which is located 5 kilometres from the center of Voronezh.
In 2016, the InformNapalm international volunteer community, based on careful analysis and open source intelligence, identified 116 officers and crew members of the Russian Aerospace Forces who participated in the bombing of Syria, killing thousands of civilians, women and children. Among them there were 8 officers from the crews of Su-34 bombers of the 47th Composite Air Regiment.
This data was presented in an infographic and translated into 13 languages.

Notably, the publication of this data in 2016 caused hysteria in the Russian media, which called it a “leak of classified information.”
It is possible that these officers currently continue to serve in the Russian Aerospace Forces and could be deployed to bomb the territory of Ukraine if the Russian aggression in the Donbas evolves into a full-scale Russian invasion. The members of these crews gained combat experience in Syria and have already demonstrated their readiness to carry out the Kremlin’s criminal orders.
