Russian Air Forces were formed from the parts of the Soviet Air Forces in 1991-92. But during the era of the Soviet Union, Air Forces were formed in 1918 from the remnants of the Imperial Russian Air Service. At the beginning Air Forces were mainly used for reconnaissance, but later their functions were enhanced. During World War II the Soviet Armed Forces played an important role in battles against Nazi Germany.
Present-day Russian Air Forces include modern aircraft and highly qualified personnel, safeguarding the borders of the state and in participating in various international missions.
