 The military exercises of Russian fighter planes startled the elite fighter planes of the United States, Britain and Canada to intercept


Global Times reported that two Russian Tu-95MS bombers and several fighter planes broke into the North American Air Defense Identification Zone near Alaska, and two F-22 fighters and two CF-18 fighter planes were deployed by the United States and Canada to intercept, according to a statement issued by the North American Air Defense Command on Wednesday. On the same day, the British Ministry of Defense declared that the British Air Force fighter planes tracked and intercepted Russian fighter planes twice over the Baltic Sea that day. The Russian fighter planes did not inform the flight plan, nor communicated with the air traffic control agencies. During the interception, it happened unintentionally.

In response, the Russian Ministry of Defense said on the 8th that the flight was part of the ongoing Russian Shield of the Sea - 2019 military exercise. All flights were conducted in strict accordance with international airspace regulations and did not violate the airspace of any country.

Two Russian bombers completed their flight over the neutral waters of the Bering Strait for more than 10 hours on the same day. Russian bombers encountered U.S. Air Force F-22 and other fighters during part of their flight, the Russian news agency reported on September 9. The Russian Ministry of Defense emphasizes that Russian long-range air forces often fly over neutral waters in the Arctic, Atlantic, Black Sea, Pacific and other sea areas. The U.S. military always wants to show the outside world that they are stronger, said Brenzhev, an associate professor in the Department of Politics and Sociology at Oplehanov University of Economics. Therefore, they announced that they had intercepted Russian military aircraft, but in fact they were only tracking Russian military aircraft, and there was no interception problem. They try to outdo us in public opinion.

At the same time, Russias Tass News Agency reported on the 9th that the United States and other NATO countries often fly similar flights in international airspace near the Russian coast. In the first half of this year, U.S. B-52 bombers flew several times near the Russian border and simulated missile attacks against Russia. Russias Ministry of Defense said on the 8th that only in the past week, 17 foreign military aircraft were found to carry out reconnaissance activities near the Russian border, but no violations of Russian airspace occurred.
