Buturlinovka is an air base in Russia located 4 km south of the town of Buturlinovka. There are two small alert pads at either end of runway for 10 fighters. Google Earth images from 08-05-2011 still shows more than a dozen fighter aircraft.
Units stationed at Buturlinovka include 186 ISHAP (186th Instructional Shturmovik Aviation Regiment) flying 45 Su-25 jet aircraft during the early 1990s. More recently it was home to the 899 'Orsha' Guards ShAP of the 16th Air Army, flying Su-25s, but that unit disbanded on 1 December 2009, after which the airbase was left vacant.
