Over the past week, the 14 fighter aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation intercepted foreign reconnaissance aircraft once, reports RIA News with reference to the "Red Star".



It is reported that the interceptions were performed by the fighters of the air force duty forces MiG-31 and Su-27.

“In a week, 23 reconnaissance flights of foreign aircraft near the borders of Russia were recorded, including ten flights of US reconnaissance aircraft (RC-135, Global Hawk strategic drone), four Norwegian flights aviation (R-3C "Orion"), three Swedish reconnaissance aircraft (Gulf Stream aircraft), two flights were performed by the British and French aircraft. They were also carried out by Portugal and Japan, ”the publication says.

In addition, the Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-160 over the past week patrolled the Baltic Sea area twice. The Su-27 fighters and the A-50 long-range radar detection and control aircraft also took part in the patrol, the newspaper reported.

NATO aerial reconnaissance in mid-June sharply increased activity at the western borders of Russia. The latest incident occurred recently over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea, when the F-16 fighter approached the board, on which Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was heading for Kaliningrad.

    It’s time to drop a couple and not cheek up. Ours, I think, can do this without the use of weapons.

        In Witstock, the regiment stood on duty. 24h per day. A pair of fighters all the time on takeoff quietly gasped. Team- and went on take-off. And so for the day times 5-8. Everything was considered in the order of things. Routine.

            And on the sly, they just stood at the starting point with the engines running. After some time, taking off on their own, they drove off to taxiing to the right, and in their place another pair immediately taxied out.

          I served there from 85 to 90 in Altenburg and Grossenhain, and flew to the Witshtok training ground for combat use. If I am not mistaken, were you at the Witstock MiG-29 airdrome?

            I served in Lerz, 80-82gg. (Substation 58718), we were MiG-27. And in Witstock I flew into the hospital with pneumonia. In Rechlin, we only had a hospital, so they sent me to Whitstock. From the window, the take-off was visible, just that launch site. I asked the guys "local" what it is they have flights every day for two shifts and without days off. They explained to me popularly that the regiment was on duty. Like this.
            There was a thing, something happened at the airport and they relocated to us for two weeks. Two weeks to provide flights on 24ch- "hangers" were ...

    However, NATO jackals are seriously preparing and the strengthening of intelligence indicates a continuing growing threat from the Western Front, while simultaneously trying to disperse our aircraft around the entire perimeter of the Russian Federation, starting new “fires” near our borders. And here the CSTO should contribute to stopping these threats! Yesterday it was necessary to move on to mobilizing the economy in a pre-war way, rather than praying to a liberal god, which makes our government incapable of effectively managing the country's economic development! And so it can be repeated 22.06.1941/XNUMX/XNUMX. like the tragedy of Russia. soldier
