      That's exactly what entertained. My question is what strategists can work out over the Baltic, because during the war they are definitely not tenants there. It’s clear over the Arctic Ocean, in the southern directions, it’s clear, over the Pacific Ocean - there are no questions, but over the Baltic ... request

        what can strategists practice over the Baltic

        And I have a counter question .... how many "long" reconnaissance aircraft do we have that could qualitatively "open all the" objects of interest "in the land theater?

          Bravo colleague!
          This is not just intelligence, it is a provocation of the activity of all their means of radar monitoring and control, air defense systems and command centers.

          By "vnutryanka" "Swans", and then by Drying they killed a week, I wonder how the planes carry out or whether they can, as ground means, the so-called electronic launches.

              It doesn’t matter if they only light up their entire air defense system, and then at least with boys, even with girls.

    Apparently, you need to fly every day so that NATO does not perceive the flights of our aircraft over neutral waters as something out of the ordinary. Goryuchka gets cheaper))))

    How did these authors "wear them out" with their elementary illiteracy. There is no such thing as NEUTRAL WATER. This is a neutral zone in a war, which is shot through by both warring parties. And in peacetime, the water is called INTERNATIONAL. Even Vysotsky sang, "And on the neutral strip there are flowers of extraordinary beauty"! Author, these are the international waters of the Baltic Sea. First, open at least Wikipedia. There is a definition: "The open sea (international waters) is a sea space located outside the outer limits of the territorial sea, which is not subject to the sovereignty of any state or states ..."

    The pilot who ferried the MiG-25 from the GDR to Belarus: "I turned on the afterburner and Poland was over." What is the point in these flights in formation with NATO fighters?

    Well, good. It seems that the Baltic Sea, like the Ch. Sea, is shot at from all sides, they wrote.

    I will stand up for the author. The term neutral waters was not born yesterday. This term has always been used for international waters. There was even such a Soviet film "Neutral Waters" in the 60s (the scene is the Mediterranean Sea). Therefore, the term "Neutral waters" is not a legal, but a colloquial term. And it has the right to exist ...
    Vysotsky also used this term not quite correctly. The neutral strip can only be during hostilities. This is the same strip between the trenches of the two opposing sides. Between the two countries (and Vysotsky sang specifically about the land border in many places there is also no "neutral strip." There is a state border on one side and a "neutral strip" at the land crossing is a line on the asphalt (ground) showing the border of the two countries ...

    the air more than eight hoursflight passed over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea.

    Did they fly in circles? There are no such distances over the Baltic for 8 hours of flight.

    Yeah ... Tu-160 flights in the Baltic Sea have no "aviation" meaning, and were carried out, most likely, "for advertising purposes."

    The Treaty on Open Skies, DON (eng. The Treaty on Open Skies) is a multilateral international treaty allowing the free flight of unarmed reconnaissance aircraft in the airspace of the signatory countries. It was signed on March 24, 1992 in Helsinki by representatives of 23 member states of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). The purpose of the treaty is to help build confidence between states through improving mechanisms for monitoring military activity and compliance with existing arms control treaties.
    We must offer inspection flights on the Tu-160 without weapons, for now, let them rejoice there that we are friends, it is better to be friends with us.
