Russian fighters deployed US reconnaissance aircraft over the Sea of ​​Japan

Russian fighters were lifted after air defense systems were discovered by the American RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft over the Sea of ​​Japan, moving towards the Russian border. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


The military department explained that airspace control tools found a target over the neutral waters of the Sea of ​​Japan, heading for the border of the Russian Federation, after which Su-35S and MiG-31BM fighters were lifted into the air. Russian aircraft approached the American reconnaissance aircraft at a safe distance and identified it, after which the RC-135 made a U-turn and began to move away from Russian borders.

To identify and intercept the target, Su-35S and MiG-31BM fighters from the Air Defense Forces of the Eastern Military District were raised, who, after approaching, identified it as a US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft RC-135

- The press service said, adding that Russian fighters escorted the American plane at a safe distance.


After the U.S. Air Force reconnaissance aircraft withdrew from the state border of the Russian Federation, Russian fighters returned to the airfield.

All flights of the Russian Aerospace Forces are carried out in strict accordance with international rules for the use of airspace over neutral waters

- stressed in the Ministry of Defense.

    The "safe distance" must be specified.
    One and three meters is normal, and exceptional people are offended by something in all parts of the globe.

      Is it wrong?
      This is so welcomed by us.
      When they offend, then they stick a couple of missiles into the barrel, accompanying them with a good burst from the General Staff (so that the fragments raised from the bottom are more difficult to identify) - and this is not an offense.
      Resentment is when a pilot is brought to a fool, parachuted and screaming: "Oh, mother, for what !?" (of course, in the imported language!) - this is an insult !! laughing yes

    In any case, this will not prevent the Americans from once again accusing Russian pilots of "unprofessionalism", of creating "emergency situations", "aggressive behavior", "provocation" and so on.

    It’s somehow expensive to send fighters to identify one Amer’s plane. That way they like to breed us to grandmother and enjoy the reaction. Maybe the military is worth something simpler and cheaper to come up with

      The elephant is the simplest thing, it is to ignore them, or to shoot them, it doesn’t matter, they violated the airspace of Russia, or were far away from the border! How do you like these options? ?? negative And it doesn’t matter that we are completely opposed to the whole world, but “an easy solution to the problem!” I hope that suits you? ?? sad

        Flight SU one hour 35 thousand bucks. Miga a little smaller. flight for 2 hours. Usually a couple flies. The price of the planned flight is 120 thousand dollars. Moreover, an open skies treaty is still in effect, and they can fly over Russia .. Maybe, in this case, keeping the MiG-21 is permissible. He may ask what the hell is Nuno and you are not Nana.

              That's it, agree and get permission. They may or may not allow it.

                Under the agreement, they cannot prohibit the flight. So ours flew over the White House, which is forbidden to the Americans.

                  They can and are banned and banned. Not over any area are allowed to fly.
                  So ours flew over the White House

                  The White House is not a secret military facility. If they want, they can allow them to fly over the Kremlin, just there you can find something interesting, as in the White House.

                    Guys, what oak tree did you collapse from? On May 24, the United States withdrew from the Open Skies Treaty! They did not like that Russia does not allow flying over Kaliningrad, so they rolled out of contractual relations! They even asked NATO - "Do not go, nasty!" But the Yankees gritted their teeth (or something else) and left.

      Maintaining an army is generally an expensive pleasure. Can overclock it? Let them fly, swim, ride wherever they want.

        Stepan, do not go to extremes! The imperialists are trying to cause us economic damage. So far these are isolated cases, but if they make a training schedule for the NATO countries and their allies? Therefore, I am for a reasonable optimization where possible. In the foreseeable future, in identifying enemy aircraft, we would like to rely on satellites, drones, electronic equipment, etc.

        I do not like your expression "contain the army." The army must constantly develop and improve. Yes, military budgets are not comparable. So you need to look for solutions and concentrate on those areas (like the programs of Poseidon, Peresvet, Dagger, etc.), where the enemy will be most vulnerable.

      Breeding on the headstock. There are critters who think grandmas are more agile than defending the Fatherland. But, apparently, they are not decisive if they meet uninvited people and will fly. Why should they (such) pay a pension, provide protection from an external enemy, a bandit-neighbor, treat, give leave to rest? All this is a cost. Is not it? Let's write them off immediately, upon reaching age, not treat, and so on? WHAT will be the savings!

        Look at world trends in the military field. Why do the same Turks actively use drones where we use our pilots (including to NOT pay a pension, DO NOT give leave to rest, DO NOT heal ...). Or are they all fools there or are we fools + still expensive !?

    The Yankees worked out their program to remove the radar signals that detected them, checked the reaction time of our duty forces, and with a sense of work done, left.

    They took it straight and deployed. They blocked the movement, waved the rod and said: you don’t go here. Why carry this nonsense. Well met, well, accompanied, well identified. How not to give gingerbread frenzy. So that the comments burned: there is nothing to fly where they do not ask, it was necessary to shoot, it was necessary to go through the afterburner in a meter. Ugh.

    Not at all necessary. The number of flights per year for different countries is set. But with the Americans, this Open Skies program has already covered itself with a copper basin
