Why Russia is so restrained in responding to US aviation flights at its borders - China is perplexed

81

By sending strategic B-1B bombers to the borders of Russian airspace, America plays with fire. But in response, the Russian military did not send their fighters to intercept, nor did they activate the S-400 air defense system.


The Chinese edition of Zhangguo Jungwang discusses this topic.

According to journalists from China, the provocative flights of the American aviation near Russian borders, not only attracted attention around the world, but also threaten security in the regions where this is happening.

Very often, American B-1B long-range bombers take part in NATO exercises in Europe, mainly in the Baltic Sea region, near Russian borders. The US military emphasizes the importance and necessity of these activities. In this regard, the commander of the US Air Force in Europe, Jeffrey Harrigan made the following statement:

The joint exercises of long-range bombers strengthened our relations with the European allies and demonstrated the ability of the US armed forces to reach anywhere in the world.

High activity is shown by American bombers in the Far East. For example, such an aircraft proceeded over the waters of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk as part of a 24-hour non-stop training flight on May 21.

Chinese journalists are surprised at the lack of response from the Russian side. They believe that Russia should react harder. But it is likely that the provocation of the air defense forces of the Russian Federation is one of the goals of the US military. Perhaps in this way they obtain information on air defense systems at various parts of the border of the Russian Federation.

          They do not create surplus value and never created.
          In this case, the surplus value is created by the production assets stolen from the people in the 90s and the surplus value produced by the Russians on these assets - but everything flows into offshore, except for small things like land leases and insurance ...

    This is the main purpose of such flights of reconnaissance aircraft along the borders. Previously, a "silence" mode was introduced when an approach of "scouts" was detected. Therefore, the Americans even used "civilian" aircraft, until we shot down one of them - the "South Korean". So, in vain the Chinese edition is "perplexed".
    At their borders, the Americans are now more "grazing" than ours. And Taiwan also "fixes" there a lot, through a narrow strait.

      At the moment, this is a rather useless thing, because ALL modern radars in peacetime operate ONLY on "peaceful" frequencies.
      Combat frequencies are not used at all.
      If we talk about tracking, then all such aircraft are accompanied by command centers. And then if they do not come close, then there is no formal reason for any action.

      You just need to understand that it is necessary to raise planes in the West, because they have air defense on them completely tied. This is not so with us.
      Therefore, if the aircraft can be driven by air defense systems, then the aircraft is not raised unnecessarily.

    You can intercept in the international space.
    But to react, you still need to, that means the radar must be additionally turned on, control centers to be used, and so on. And if you don’t react, they’ll shoot something good at some point.
    For this, such flights do, reconnaissance, open air defense.

      Yes, the adversary is just waiting for our additional air defense radars to turn on and activate the control centers, and they would track it all. In general, I don’t understand where the mass of such "wise" commentators are led to cheap provocation of Chinese magazines - no one is prohibited from flying in international airspace, our planes regularly fly near the American and NATO borders, theirs are ours - these are the rules of the game.

    "Why Russia is so restrained in responding to US aviation flights at its borders - China is perplexed"

    Because the overwhelming majority of the Russian "elite" now has almost everything connected with the West, and to harshly suppress the Americans, as was done in the USSR, means to anger the "Western partner", which can easily cut off all "cranks" in revenge on this "elite" in my West!

If China is so concerned about the impudence of the Amers, then why are the Chinese armed forces silent on provoking Amers off the coast of China and Hong Kong? Is the Chinese military really LESS?
    It’s just that Chinese ku needs us to start a war with the amers, and they, as always, profit from our problems. , a Chinese journalist.

    The stupidest thing you can imagine is "not being afraid." To be afraid is not to be afraid, but to beware is necessary. The fact that 6 out of 67 are currently flying does not mean that the remaining 61 are junk. Restoration of airworthiness will take place - that's all. Never and no country has a 100% fleet availability. Someone always turns out to be modernized, repaired. So they will be able to finish off the resource for a very long time. Now, if the United States withdraws from START-3, then almost all B-1Bs will be modernized and repaired.

    And the fact that we do not react - so why react if they are in "neutral waters". Would be closer to the mainland - would have raised fighters for escort, and so. Under control - and enough.

    The Russian Federation does not react at all, or rather the country's leadership does not react. The neighbors are installing medium-range missile launchers, and the Russian government is simply outraged. The neighbors simply declare the genocide of all Russian, and the Russian leadership simply does not notice it.

    And now they are modernizing and capitalizing ...

    I’m talking about this. Just for many, the phrase that only 6 V-1V is in flight condition causes a feeling of euphoria. They think that all the other 60 cars are only suitable for scrap

    I wonder why Chinese journalists should decide what to do to the generals from the Russian General Staff?

    Why Russia is so restrained in responding to US aviation flights at its borders - China is perplexed

    Because we also send our bombers to the borders of the United States. If on every occasion it’s crazy, it’s not far from a nuclear war.
    But China does not understand, so far it plays on strategic bombers in the second, if not third, league.

        What does Canada have to do with it? They flew over Venezuela. And if necessary, they will fly again. And for the Yankees, Venezuela, which is Ukraine for us.

          No, Venezuela is not like Ukraine for us to Americans. For them, in the role of Ukraine, probably Mexico. And Venezuela for the States, for example, as for us Afghanistan. There, by the way, the Americans constantly fly. And not only fly.

            Well, no - for the Yankees, all of Latin America is their economic compound. For us, Afghanistan has always been a distant country. We periodically had political influence there - but nothing more. And while the Yankees have enough mind not to climb into Venezuela with troops, like we are in Afghanistan. And in Venezuela (and other aircraft), the more or less worthwhile had American masters, which is why Latin Americans have such a persistent aversion to gringo. . And by the way, the Venezuelans managed to kick out the gringos, but they cannot manage to establish the economy without the Yankees - they too played with socialism in its Trotsky version. Sorry for offtopic.

    If these planes do not cross the airspace of Russia, then there should be no conversation. Let the Chinese remember better the 1001 warning. In the USSR, planes were hit only when they crossed the border. And the tension was much greater than now.
