TYSOVETS, Ukraine -- Moscow will get 25 strategic bombers from Ukraine in exchange for Russian military transport and combat aircraft, top Russian military officials said Friday.


The announcement, reported by Interfax, came at a meeting between Russian Defense Minister Pavel Grachev and his Ukrainian counterpart, Valery Shmarov.


Grachev and Shmarov signed 17 agreements Friday related to military cooperation between their countries, but reported no final accord on the division of the Black Sea fleet.
