How do you like that, NATO? Russian fighters attack NATO reconnaissance aircraft and drones


Russian fighters intercepted NATO drones and reconnaissance aircraft at their borders.

Once again, NATO’s attempt to approach the Russian borders turned out to be for the crews of “spy” planes and operators a real round-up by the Russian Air Force. As it turned out, Russian combat aircraft took the reconnaissance planes and drones by surprise, as a result of which the latter could not even approach the Russian borders, although a few days ago NATO fighters tried to intercept the Russian air force planes in this way, which is obviously a retaliatory measure.

“On July 14, 2020, Russian airspace control tools over the waters of the Barents and Black Seas discovered air targets flying in the direction of the state border of the Russian Federation”, the National Center for Defense Management of the Russian Federation said in a statement.

It is known that there was no violation of the border of the Russian Federation, however, something else is noteworthy - according to some reports, flights near the Russian borders were arranged in advance to try to “shoot down” the Russian military with a similar strategy, which, by the way, has been officially confirmed what did not get.

At the moment, it is known that near the Russian borders were seen aircraft P-3C Orion, P-8A Poseidon, RC-135 and an unmanned aerial vehicle MQ-9A Reaper.
