      We circle around their borders, they circle around ours ... One thing is bad - they are much closer to our borders than we are to them!

    Foolishness toil. Unclear why. While Russia is standing firmly on its feet, this "midge" even flies ... History has shown that Russia can be "damaged" only from the inside ...

    It's time for us to fly around England. In size, it is slightly larger than Kaliningrad. if we didn’t drive them away, then it’s bad .... request they will rush at us.

    It’s very interesting how our people will get out of the situation with DON. In general, they will withdraw from the treaty or forbid anyone to fly over the “cretic points of our defense.” People who are involved in DON from Russia will never voice their position at all.

      Who are these “ours” and why do you continue to believe in some kind of agreement, especially when there is already (and still) no one to negotiate with?
