      First you invest in their economy annually about $ 100 billion as their American comrades do, then maybe they will want to talk to you, but for now not on Senka’s hat.

          It is clear that you go to the robot not for money, but for fun. We have a different way.
          In the matter under discussion, everything is decided by money. Russia has nothing to offer Mexico and therefore the "non-spiritual" Mexicans choose the United States. fellow

          And where are the screams of NATO aggression? Following the example of Western ministers and the media about flying over the North Sea of ​​Russian TU-160. In Russia, everyone knows everything and silently do their job, without undue noise.

      These are primarily missile carriers (AGM-86, 158), bombs are secondary. B-52, regardless of age, will still be relevant for 20 years for sure. Tu-95MS at an equally respectable age and this does not prevent him from completing tasks.

      And Tu-95 in the sky near NATO countries what is the purpose? Probably the same - "Learning is light, so let them study. But the targets of them are just beautiful! Neither heat and noise, nor interference can help and it is impossible to dodge such a hippo."

        The only difference is that we just fly, and not do training bombing. Do you feel the difference?

          I feel the difference. The difference is that the US allies give them the possibility of training bombing near the Russian Federation, and the allies of the Russian Federation do not give the possibility of training bombing near the USA. Something like this.
