They are trying to take Russia "weakly": the United States increased the number of reconnaissance flights near the borders of the Russian Federation

The United States has dramatically increased the number of reconnaissance flights of its aviation near the Russian borders, to which Russia is responding by raising its fighters into the sky to intercept. This practice can lead to large-scale and dangerous confrontation, writes The National Interest.


According to the American edition, in recent months, the United States has increased the number of flights of its aircraft along the Russian borders, paying special attention to the Black Sea and Baltic regions. In turn, the Russian Aerospace Forces are raising their fighters into the sky in order to drive off enemy aircraft from their border.

Basically, the newspaper writes, after such interceptions, when Russian planes are approaching American aircraft for identification, American pilots complain about a "dangerous approach." Such complaints, the magazine notes, are typical of the US response to such incidents.

It is noted that hundreds of such interceptions occur every year along the entire Russian border. At the same time, the publication emphasizes that both sides are responsible for unnecessarily provocative and dangerous behavior, most of the blame lies with the United States.

You might think that the United States is trying to take Russia "weakly", but such behavior could end in tragedy

- the magazine writes.

According to the publication, it is the United States and its NATO allies that surround Russia, and not Russia that surrounds the United States, so any air skirmishes should be considered in this context.

It is unlikely that intelligence from reconnaissance aircraft is such a valuable addition to satellite imagery that it is worth going to air clashes for it, risking dangerous diplomatic and military consequences.

- the magazine concludes.

    If there are hundreds of such skirmishes in a year, and so from year to year, this is not so dangerous.
    Both the one and the other side (their departments) with such exercises knocks money out of the general defense budget for their Air Force.
    And in the age of a companion it is rather a tribute to the fashion of the past years.

          Let the mayor of Nagasaki call for anything. The main thing is that we have no desire to repeat the fate of Hiroshima.
          Unarmed people are always beaten very cruelly. Russia is not Nagasaki and Hiroshima. It is not yet known who will feel all the charm before. But with air provocations it is time to end it. And in America, too, they have already begun to realize that apart from misfortune nothing good will come of it. Won in Beirut exploded in 1500 equivalent tons. And then millions of tons of charges will fly.

    It's easier. The United States withdrew from the "Open Skies" treaty, therefore, increased the number of "reconnaissance flights" around Russia.

      The open sky became a rudiment 20 years ago.
      There the flight route is agreed in advance. Nothing that can be seen through satellites - from an airplane without a complex filling (and you can't even see it).
      It was abandoned as a tube TV.

        Fibrizio ..It was abandoned as a tube TV

        How to say. The agreement was signed in 1992 and signed by 36 countries. Although the routes were agreed upon, the results were still there. Of course, our An-26 made more "noise". And when they created a "intelligence laboratory" specially equipped - Tu-154, the Americans began to refuse us, for far-fetched reasons. The United States has much more intelligence capabilities than ours (satellite, UAV, etc.). Moreover, they were in the 90s, they studied our "defense industry", up and down, we ourselves opened "doors" for them, they were then our "friends-partners". Now, they allowed us to fly over them, because they were convinced of the capabilities of our "pilot", that this is far from a "tube TV". As the saying goes, "they are afraid, it means they respect," therefore they unilaterally withdrew from the agreement. hi

    In general, do not figs do Pind-Wasps combat aircraft near the borders of Russia. Russia borders the United States only in one place on the globe - the Bering Strait (88 km). That's where amers have a reason to fly. And on the Black and Baltic seas - fuck from the beach! It's like Russian planes will start flying in the Hudson Bay area.

    As my friend from our flight school said - These interceptions are flowers. Amazing discoveries and sensations await them when the interceptor fires a parallel course with the intruder from the 30mm cannon.
    Why provoke, I xs ... No.
    Ours will shoot down such a plane and after that there will be a dry wording of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: "Could pose a threat to the Russian Federation. Was destroyed in order to avoid an incident."
    So what? Will they immediately declare war on us? Oh well...

    And if, in response, they are instructed to use the same REP? But on a bomber, such a system can be very powerful. And how do you plan to excuse yourself from using REP in neutral space? Is it okay that in a similar situation they will "jam" ours with REP?
    And about "Donald Cook". even the author of that tale disavowed his bike, but no. Proraslo. Everyone now remembers "Cook" on the SU-24, which flew around it, "Khibin" was not a word at all. But is it really important. The main thing is to rejoice "as we are them"

    In all this fuss, besides the frankly provocative component, there is one more simple meaning .. - our "yawn" once or twice, you look and the heads and shoulder straps will fly .. The commanders of the units are taught .. as in that parable about a woman and wolves .. when ours screw up and their heads fly - new people who have been put into the topic will enter the topic until they study the specifics .. and they will start to be cautious once again .. so you will draw a second Rust .. or a Korean Boeing .. It's silly to think with the current development of aviation and rocketry that in order to strike at our territory you need to cross the border .. There will be no Heinkels armada ... radar stations will be destroyed without entering our airspace. Therefore, they fly and provoke. Look at Israel in Syria .. - the range of missiles and guided munitions taxis .. here is what I read here the other day: US State Department Arctic Coordinator Jim Dehart said that Washington perceives the Taimyr Peninsula "as the northern flank of NATO" ... And in In the 80s they flew in our Arctic, and now no one will forbid them .. - it remains to look after them .. and that's it.
