The Russian Ministry of Defense published a video named "Heavy air strikes against terrorist targets carried out by the aircraft of long-range aviation and air group in Syria" on its Youtube channel Dec. 8, 2015. This video helped us to identify Tu-22M3 long-range supersonic bomber with side No. 'red 24' (tail No. 'RF-94154′) named 'Mikhail Shidlovsky' from the 43rd air combat training center.

Thanks to an article by Dmitry Kazakov we were able to establish that two Tu-22M3 long-range bombers took part in the 'Victory parade' in 2015. These were 'red 24' (RF-94154) and 'red 42' (RF-94142) aircraft from the 52nd guards heavy bomber aviation regiment (Shaykovka, Kaluga Oblast, Russia). "Massive airstrike against the ISIS targets in Syria conducted by long-range aircraft", another video by Russia's Ministry of Defense uploaded Nov. 17, states that the warplanes from this aviation unit were used in punitive operation against the Syrian people.
