The Russian military blocked a new provocation of American strategic bombers near the borders of Russia

American strategic bombers again tried to get closer to the Russian borders.

A few hours ago, a Russian Su-35S fighter and Russian air defense systems prevented US Air Force B-52 strategic bombers from approaching Russian borders. The purpose of the approach of the latter to the Russian borders remains unknown, however, a critical approach and violation of the state border was avoided.

“On March 20, radar facilities of the air defense forces of the Western Military District on duty over the Baltic Sea detected two air targets flying in the direction of the State Border of the Russian Federation. The targets are classified as two US Air Force B-52H strategic bombers. In order to identify and prevent violations of the state border of the Russian Federation, a Su-35 fighter from the air defense forces of the Western Military District was taken into the air, the crew of which occupied the established zone of duty in the air., - informs the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

Earlier, American strategic bombers had already approached the borders of Russia three times. This is definitely a provocation directed against Russia, however, apparently, Russia has complete control over the flights of strategic bombers of the US Air Force.

A few weeks earlier, it became known that the United States had deployed at least 4 B-52 strategic bombers to Europe.
