The Pentagon refuted the interception of B-52: "the bomber was able to complete its mission"


The Pentagon completely refuted the interception of its strategic bomber.

Representatives of the US Department of Defense, commenting on the incident with the interception of the American strategic bomber B-52H Stratofortress in the sky over the Baltic Sea, stated that the information provided by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not correspond to reality and "The bomber was able to complete his mission".

“The US Air Force B-52 aircraft carried out routine operations in international airspace, implementing the principle of freedom of navigation and overflight. On March 20, the B-52 had a routine meeting with the Russian fighter Su-27, which carried out operations over the Baltic Sea. <...> The pilots used radar beacons and acted in accordance with international law. The Russian plane did not drive off the B-52, as stated, and the bomber was able to complete its mission "- said Pentagon spokesman Eric Paehon.

Nevertheless, the experts called this statement a pathetic attempt to justify it, since all the circumstances indicate that the Russian Su-27 fighters forced the US military to leave the current course and enter the airspace, stressing that the B-52H Stratofortress crew literally ran away, noticing the air Russian pestering.

Next time, he will not complete his mission and B-52 will be shot down.

Similarly, Kolyan! And ours would not have guessed it ... I would have shared my mind with the leadership of the VKS!

it would be necessary to fly around in an old instant and inadvertently hook. and then say: Oh and we are accidentally an old airplane, PARDON:
