Russian su–27 over the past day twice rose into the air to accompany strategic bombers B–52H US air force over the Baltic sea. Domestic fighters did not allow the American military to approach the state border of Russia.
According to the portal NSN, Soviet and Russian Lieutenant General, former Deputy Commander of The Russian air force on the joint air defense system of the CIS countries Aitech Bizhev believes that in the future the activity of the us military at the state border of Russia will only grow. The commander also noted that the United States is returning to the methods by which they worked during the “cold war“.
“Apparently, it was revived in connection with the upcoming events on the exit from the INF TREATY and our military–political statements,” – said Bizhev.
According to the Russian General, the US is currently trying to explore the territories of the Russian Federation. He stressed that the aircraft seen over the Baltic sea is able to identify new EW technologies that can be located near Kaliningrad.
Aitech Bizhev noted that the flights of the Russian su–27 to accompany foreign military aircraft comply with the current regulatory framework. He also added that the growth of American activity near the borders of the Russian Federation is nothing but a reaction to the strengthening of the army and defense of Russia.
“Therefore, until the Americans reveal the full range of electronic warfare, confirming our statements, they will not rest. It is necessary to wait for repetitions of flights at night, in the afternoon – at any time“, – the Lieutenant General summarized.
