Voronezh Malshevo (also Malshevo, Mal'shevo, Voronezh Southwest, Baltimor) is an air base in Russia located 7 km southwest of Voronezh.

Up until late 2009 it was the home of the 105th Composite Aviation Division and 455th Bomber Aviation Regiment,[1] both with 16th Air Army/Special Purpose Command, the air forces command of the Moscow Military District. Following the air force reforms of 2009-10, it became the headquarters of the 7000th Air Base.
