And about two nundred of them were the launcher of K-10m complex. As for the other sub-units of the Forces and in the industry the 156 aircrafts were exploited.

That's why on the eve of the Soviet Union disintegration about 173 models of Tu-16 aircraft were saved on the European part of the country. Eighty one aircrafts were the property of the Air Forces and ninety two of them were given to the Navy.
After the signatures were put under the Belavezhskiy agreements more then a half of the Tu-16 (121 aircrafts) were given to the Ukraine, 18 items to Byelorussia and the other ones to Russia. But already in two years only 19 aircrafts flied in the Ukrainian sky and about 49 of them were stored at the bases. In Byelorussia it was not even only one Tu-16 at that moment. In Russia Tu-16 were officially withdrawed in 1994.
