Looking back on the results achieved in the period between the two holidays, it was singled out that the ASW Service and 126th ASEWG Brigade had shown professionalism, commitment and expertise in executing all the tasks and contributed to the successful functioning of the system of control and protection of the airspace of the Republic of Serbia.
