      Well, you don’t need to make a super-duper event out of it. This is a common practice, both from them and from our side. Do not follow the cheap journalists who constantly make elephants out of flies.

          This is a common practice, both on their part and on our part.

          It’s a usual practice for them, they fly there every two days. And when our similar scouts flew over the borders of the western cap.states or Florida, do not remind?

    They fly, ours track, if necessary, fly to intercept. Everyone trains in a close combat environment. Something quite a while ago our strategists did not fly to the Cuban district.

    It is time for us to begin to be close friends with Mexico while America has set its sights on moving away from it. And of course, they will need to be helped to control the situation at the border, for example, the A-100 just right.
