      Once again, they recalled their presence not only to Russia, but also to the allies. For Russia - a test of nerve strength, for the Allies - reassurance. wink

    So ours constantly fly there where it is prescribed by a combat mission. And our VKS do not focus on the United States with their allies where they fly and what to do.

    For information to the author - the island of Alexandra Land is part of the Franz Josef Land archipelago! Therefore, the sentence "In addition, he flew in the area of ​​the island of Alexandra Land" after the mention of the flight of the plane in the "area of ​​the Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land" speaks of complete geographic cretinism! Dear USE victim: if the plane passed in the area of ​​the ZFI archipelago (Franz Josef Land), then this by default implies that it passed in the area of ​​all its islands, including Alexandra Land.
    Because "profound" "besides" in this case is not at all in the subject !!!
    Administration - where is the respect for readers? !!!!
    Your nameless authors have tired of their ignorance!
