The Ministry of Defense commented on the flight of the Tu-160 near the NATO countries


The department said that the pilots of the distant aviation regularly fly over the neutral waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic, Black and Caspian Seas, and the Pacific Ocean.

All flights of the airplanes of the Air and Space Forces of Russia are carried out in strict accordance with international rules for the use of airspace without violating the borders of other states.
- added to the ministry.

At certain stages of the route, Russian aircraft were escorted by Eurofighter Typhoon fighters of the British Air Force and F-16 Belgian Air Force.

State agencies confirmed that the missile carriers did not violate the boundaries of their airspace. At the same time, the British Ministry of Defense said that Typhoon fighters took off, as the crews of the Tu-160 did not respond to requests from ground services.

      All this is an empty chatter that our pilots did not respond to requests from ground services, just some people all the time want to show that they also mean something in this world. And it always amuses me when they say that their planes went up to intercept, as if they were going to shoot down. I doubt that this is enough for the spirit.

          What is the point of raising interceptors?
          Missiles X ... fly over 5000 km

          Who will fly into the interceptor area?

          This is so that they are remembered and not forgotten

        Legal regulation of flights in the international airspace

        International airspace is located over the open sea, international straits and archipelagic waters, as well as over the Antarctic.
        The principle of freedom of the open sea is associated with the principle of freedom of open air space above it. All statesregardless of whether they are coastal or not, have the right freely, i.e. without the permission of anyone, to carry out air navigation over the open sea and do not acquire sovereign rights in relation to this airspace. However, this freedom is exercised by states taking into account the basic principles of international law and, therefore, involves a number of generally recognized rules.
        The state retains its jurisdiction over the aircraft registered by it, flying in international airspace. The power of another state does not extend to this aircraft, which also means that it is unacceptable to interfere with the flight of this aircraft.

        And what should answer? They didn’t violate the airspace of other countries, didn’t touch anyone or threaten anyone, flew quietly about their business over neutral waters, and didn’t plan to land anywhere. Why should they respond to someone's requests? It turns out that then submarines are obliged to report where and when, in what waters they go. Just an airplane is easier to spot. It's okay, flew up, looked that the Russians flew back. Why make the problem of an ordinary event.

        I join, it amuses me too, especially when you consider that in the case of -160 it’s too late !! In the distant '90 amers seemed to be shown the Tu-160, the conclusion: without even having an advanced R-B system like the B-1b, the plane enters the air defense like a 'knife in oil'. Real interception of the Tu-160 is now an impossible task, but manufacturers of diapers are happy ... lol

      After the flight of our missile carriers at the borders of Western countries, the circus begins in the media and social networks.
      I am always interested in this moment ... here the Sumerians and the ancient diggers of the Black Sea and the daughters of Crimean officers and the victims of Clinton's blowjob crawl out ... the circus and laughter begin.

    What can I say. Successful flights wish. And they would quickly modernize Tu -160.
    Estimate it, I flew it from Uzin to Mangokhto as a kid-ballast in the USSR, my father sent to my relatives, he had a little "boss". What wind brought it there, there Tu-95. And back to the Tu-95 in the cockpit arrow. Romance.

      Maybe you confuse with Tu-116
      There just wasn’t a Tu-160 in Uzin

    --- "At the same time, the British Ministry of Defense said that Typhoon fighters took to the air, as Tu-160 crews did not respond to requests from ground services." - This business is not lordly, not according to the rank of “slaves”, if they consider it necessary, then there is support for this.

    Tu-160 completed a scheduled flight over neutral waters of the Barents, Norwegian and North Seas
    NATO should thank our strategists, as those do not let them relax. And for a long time, Western pilots (sailors, commandos), as practice shows, cannot be in tension for a long time - for some reason a nervous breakdown turns out. By Western definition, this is one of the types of hybrid war that Russia allegedly wages with a quiet and furry west.

    To conduct exercises in a neutral sky off the coast of Europe with the mass participation of strategists, accompanied by a large number of fighters and interceptors. Call the exercises "Ambulance", according to which Russia is helping to free the country captured by terrorists, code-named Aporve. Noble would be trolling ...

      Guys, but essentially have something to write ??? It’s ridiculous to read directly: When a NATO man approaches our borders and his Rusk intercepts, then our speaker, and the enemy is with charred ports, if on the contrary, our speakers are all the same, but they rise to intercept only because well, everyone was obstructed, even pilots NATO fighters fly and as they approach the Russian plane, the level of hydrogen sulfide in the cockpit rises. And yes, only ours are intercepted, all the others “escort”. Experts damn it.

        But Russia will not be hysterical when the NATO people fly back and forth over the borders.

        And they constantly have accusations in the direction of the Russian aerospace forces of unprofessionalism.
        So the flights of the Russian Federation and NATO are two big differences.

          What does hysteria do not hysteria? I write about the comments following the article. Here people write about the fact that any flight of Russian planes causes diarrhea in the whole of NATO. The delirium of pure water, which is written by adult men, moreover, many of whom gave their lives to the army. And as for the professionalism of their pilots, I can say that I personally have more than once seen how they came into our tail neatly without a fuss, and our STR is silent, and the Dryers hang out somewhere, it doesn't always happen, of course, but it happens. And by the way, we, too, no, no, and we express concern about the flights of their aircraft near our borders, we keep statistics, we collect briefings, but this is not hysteria, right?

    West, West, soon you will eat yourself alternately, as you are not able to live without wars, aggression against small defenseless states in order to feed on a freebie. Russia, however, is already too tough for you because Anglo-Saxons are furious, because of this they demonize Russia and our president. Well, villainy is visible from afar to everyone.
