Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu is on an official visit to Myanmar. Today he will hold talks with the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Myanmar, Senior General Min Aung Hline. The parties will discuss military and military-technical cooperation, as well as the situation in the Asia-Pacific region. On January 22, Shoigu laid a wreath at the memorial to fallen heroes in Naypyidaw, which is dedicated to the defenders who gave their lives for the freedom and independence of Myanmar. The memorial is located in the Zeyatiri district of the Myanmar capital Naypyidaw.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that bilateral military-technical cooperation between Russia and Myanmar is developing dynamically. Russia supplied this country with 30 MiG-29 fighters, 12 combat training Yak-130s, six multipurpose Su-30SME aircraft, ten Mi-24 and Mi-35P attack helicopters, eight Pechora-2M anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as radar stations, armored vehicles and artillery systems. A joint service center for servicing all types of equipment has been created in Myanmar.

Units of the Myanmar Army participate in the International Army Games. In 2020, they took part in the strategic exercise Kavkaz-2020. There is an Intergovernmental Agreement on a simplified procedure for the entry of warships into the ports of Russia and Myanmar.
