The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published unique footage of the interception of an American strategic bomber.

Representatives of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published unique footage of the interception of the American strategic bomber B-52H by fighter jets of the VKS. On the presented video frames, you can see how the pilot of the Su-27 fighter approaches the US Air Force aircraft that approached 100 kilometers to the borders of the airspace of the Russian Federation.

It is known that the American strategic aircraft could carry out a strike on the territory of Russia, which, however, was not seen for the first time. However, when Russian combat aircraft appeared in the air, the crew of the B-52H immediately changed course, entering Polish airspace.

It is reported that neither the crew of a strategic bomber, nor the crew of Russian fighters expressed any visible aggression, while, when changing course with an American plane, the Russian Su-27 immediately returned to Russia's airspace.
