A military ceremony was held today in the "Banjica" barracks in Belgrade on the occasion of the Day of Anti-Aircraft Artillery and Missile Units, which is marked in memory of September 30, 1915, when Radoje Raka Ljutovac shot down an enemy plane with a modified field cannon.

As part of the ceremony, ceremonial parade and a display of weapons and military equipment were held, wreaths were laid at the memorial in the barracks and awards and recognitions were presented to the most prominent individuals.

The celebration was an opportunity to once again highlight the high level of training of members of anti-aircraft artillery and missile units, which was confirmed at the recent live fire at targets in the airspace in Bulgaria, when all targets intended for destruction were hit.

Today's ceremony was attended by the Minister of Defense, Nebojša Stefanović PhD and the Commander of the Air Force and Air Defense, Lieutenant General Duško Žarković.
