So what's the hidden message of this exercise? And what will Cyprus gain from such a "military cooperation"?

No use unless they drop a few clanging boomers over the 40,000 illegal Turkish troops occupying Cyprus.

They are still screaming around the sky making a hell of a noise and frightening the animals.

They were still flying around after dark last night. The dog thought the Russians were coming and wouldn't stop barking (Yapping) at them.

They also seem to be flying very low? We can see the Kouris valley from the front porch and they were disappearing down through the hills to the left and then exiting right at great speed over the dam and then climbing out over the Limassol old port area and sea front.
