Interception of Russian planes


Britain sent fighters to intercept Russian Tu-95 bombers

Britain raised interceptors in the air because of approaching to the border of Russian aircraft Tu-95.

According to representatives of the UK Ministry of Defense themselves, no violation of the airspace occurred, but if it crossed, the aircraft would immediately respond. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that the approach of the aircraft was detected only a few minutes before their approach to the border, which makes the air defense of the EU countries not as reliable as previously stated.

It should be noted that earlier such a case occurred near the US coast, when, according to the US military, the Russian Tu-95 bomber had almost invaded the country's airspace, but never remained noticed until its arrival.
