The Russian military announced that fifth-generation American fighters, located at a relatively short distance from the Russian borders, were detected and successfully accompanied by Russian air defense systems. We are talking about the F-35 and F-22 fighters.

The latter include the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II aircraft. In a press release, the company notes that on the first day of winter, one year has passed since the "Container" took up combat duty in Mordovia.
