"They are studying the future theater of military operations": the Defense Ministry notes the activation of American "strategists"

The Department of Defense notes the significantly increased activity of US strategic bombers flying along the Russian borders. From late August to the present, Russian fighters have repeatedly risen to "intercept" American strategists.


According to the Russian military department, the main flight routes of American strategists are the southern direction with the Crimea and the Black Sea, the western direction with Kaliningrad and, more recently, the eastern direction with the Bering Sea. According to the commander-in-chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, the crews of American bombers are studying a possible theater of operations and practicing cruise missile strikes against Russian military targets.

The Department of Defense constantly provides data on the "interception" of American strategists, so you can easily trace the routes of flights of bombers.

On August 31, three Russian Su-27 fighters from the Baltic fleet "intercepted" over the Baltic Sea three American strategic bombers B-52H, heading towards the Russian border. After "contact" with Russian fighters, the Americans changed course and left.

On September 4, three US Air Force B-52H strategic bombers approached the Russian border over the Black Sea and from Ukraine. Eight fighters from the air defense forces of the Southern Military District - 4 Su-27 fighters and 4 Su-30 fighters - were brought up to "intercept" the American strategists.

On September 14, two Russian Su-27 and two Su-30 fighters from the Southern District "intercepted" three US B-52 strategic bombers over the Black Sea, flying towards the Russian border from Ukraine.

September 15 fighters MiG-31 naval aviation The Pacific Fleet and Su-35 Air Defense Forces flew to "intercept" two US Air Force B-1B Lancer strategic bombers flying over the Bering Sea. Russian planes were escorted by American strategists over the Bering and Okhotsk seas.

On September 17, a MiG-31 from the Pacific Fleet Air Defense Duty Force flew to "intercept" two US Air Force B-1B Lancer strategic bombers and monitored their flight over the Bering Sea.

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense notes that there have been no violations of the Russian border by American strategists so far, all the aircraft were over neutral waters or in the airspace of their allies and partners.

For our part, we note that the US Air Force B-52H strategic bombers were transferred from the United States to Fairford airbase in Great Britain, the B-1B Lancer strategic bombers were transferred to the island of Guam, and are also based at Ellsworth Air Base (South Dakota).

    The theater of war itself has long been studied.
    The coordinates of all the main objects of NATO countries and others who wish, have already been laid down in the corresponding systems.

              You laugh in vain. In the Russian-Japanese war, not a single victory was won either on land or at sea. Russia lost it shamefully, as in that song "Argentina - Jamaica five zero". For that, before the war, everywhere there was the same atmosphere of hats and theft on military orders. Just like now.

                and the revolutionary mood did not reign? there is no doubt that the RI would have crushed Japan, but the revolutionary movements were already blowing their brains out and disturbing the tsarist ministers, by the way, it was Japan through the United States (Britain and the United States, Japan's economic allies of that time), asked for peace.

      Exactly. Additional reconnaissance of the targets is underway before the "disarming strike" is delivered. The order can come at any time. The problem is purely technological: the frog is cooked slowly.

        The disarming blow is nothing more than a Wishlist, sounded to calm down the own citizens of the disarming countries.
        However, modern reality will not allow this.
        Freaks overslept the moment.

      Why build a NATO base if it is possible to give permission to deploy troops of another country at your base? For example the USA.

      So why give a shit? Today we will shoot down a lone B-52 in international airspace, and tomorrow, on a flight, accompanied by an AUG that suddenly appeared in the north, a pair of Tu-22M3 or Tu-160 on duty will disappear, while on routine duty, they will receive an emergency engine failure over the ocean in the form of an F-15 / 18/22.
      This is roughly how it works, if you are going to shoot down foreign strategic bombers in international airspace or over neutral waters, then this means that you agree that your strategists will not return to base either.
      But this is unlikely to ever come to that.

    Why study it, they studied it long ago back in the days when they had an air (supposedly) bridge to Afghanistan, through our Ulyanovsk. Although through Turkey or Pakistan it was closer. Additional exploration is another matter, taking into account the appearance of the Crimea, and new units and formations in the indicated directions. sad

    The Russian proverb says: "Do not wash, do it by rolling." It’s scary to start a war with Russia, but it’s not dangerous to press psychologically and keep you on your toes (if you don’t violate the airspace). And at the same time practicing virtual strikes, reconnaissance, tk. in addition to strategists, reconnaissance aircraft also became frequent, etc. Additional information is never superfluous.
    By the way, our aerospace forces also have the ability to practice interceptions and virtual destruction of air targets.
