WSJ: Washington will limit flights of Russian military aircraft over the US

36
The US authorities intend to limit the flights of Russian military aircraft over the United States under the Open Skies Treaty, reports Wall Street Journal.


The Open Skies Treaty was signed in Helsinki on March 24 1992 by representatives of the OSCE participating States 23. Russia ratified it in May 2001. Contracting parties may fly over each other’s territories to control military activities.

WSJ: Washington will limit flights of Russian military aircraft over the US


According to the WSJ, the restriction will be the response of the American authorities to the Kremlin’s ban on flying over Kaliningrad. Within the framework of the Open Skies Treaty, the range of a reconnaissance flight can be up to 5,5 thousands of kilometers. "Russia has introduced a" sublimit "in 500 kilometers over Kaliningrad," adds the publication.

According to the newspaper, the United States may limit the flights of Russian military aircraft over Alaska and Hawaii.

We want to force Russia to respect the treaty again.
- quotes the publication of an unnamed US high-ranking official.

The US delegation will announce new measures on Tuesday during a meeting of the Consultative Commission of the Open Skies Treaty, which will be held in Vienna, reports RIA News

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reports that a group of Russian inspectors in the framework of the implementation of the International Treaty on Open Skies plans to carry out two consecutive observation flights on the Russian Tu-154М Лк-1 aircraft over the US territory.

Observation flights will be operated from 25 to 30 September from the Wright-Patgerson open sky airfield with a maximum range of 4 thousands of 900 kilometers and October from 2 to 7 October from the Trais open sky skyline with a maximum range of 4 thousands of 250 kilometers
- informs the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The Russian aircraft will fly according to the routes agreed with the observed party, and US experts on board will monitor the use of the observation equipment and compliance with the provisions stipulated by the Treaty.

      You didn’t seem to read the article. It is written there:
      “According to WSJ, the restriction will be the answer of the American authorities to the“ ban of the Kremlin on flying over Kaliningrad. ”Under the Open Skies Treaty, the reconnaissance flight range can be up to 5,5 thousand kilometers.“ Russia introduced a sublimit of 500 kilometers over Kaliningrad "- adds the publication."
      This means that this is a response from the United States.

        And why on Kaliningrad they 5,5 thousand km? Are they going to fly in a spiral there?
        500 km and enough ... as they say either in length or across.

      Unfortunately, this will not work ... it will be necessary to take off their complexes from duty and transfer them to Syria. It is not worth it. With what we have in Syria and the Syrians, so far it turns out to block only the most important areas. Perhaps to storm Idlib and Raqqi, they will transfer a couple of three of the new Shell-C1 for a break-in ...

    It should be so, but we will now have six months to think, and then they will invite the children of Ameikan pilots to the New Year tree in the Kremlin - this will be such an asymmetric answer.

    We want to force Russia to respect the treaty again.

    And again, "force" Russia. Interestingly, the "screensaver" has not yet dried up? They go to restrictions, but Russia is not observing the contract.
    "Russia has introduced a" sublimit "of 500 kilometers above Kaliningrad"
    Yes, even if they looked at the map. There it took off and you need to return already.

      This is because you had the opportunity to observe the participants of the special Olympiad among the best beer patriots of the site.
      They either do not read the article, or simply are not able to understand the content of 3 paragraphs of the text without special terms.
      But they are always patriotically ready to move their sofa to another corner of the room as an answer to the Enemies of the Homeland (tm).

        Is this the problem? According to the media (https://iz.ru/news/619901), we were the first to switch to new equipment for these machines. Maybe the dog rummaged here? As for Alaska - a flag in hand. satellites will work well there.

      Because it was the Americans who were the first to unilaterally introduce a ban on the flight of a Russian aircraft, so we gave a mirror answer. Now everything will go in a new circle.

        Americans were previously the first to unilaterally ban

        Something theme passed me by. It is possible in a nutshell where they banned and how did they argue?

    That's it, the process has begun. The United States is sliding into a frank confrontation. Apparently, nevertheless, they need a great war somewhere (the main thing away from them) as air. Promotion of hysteria is growing, tension in various regions, too. And then the transition from quantity to quality. And away we go ......
