A British analyst said that last year's attack on a British plane by a Russian fighter jet could have started a war.

In September 2022, the actions of a Russian fighter could allegedly provoke a world war. This statement was made by British analyst, honorary professor at the University of Buckingham Anthony Glees.

Let us recall that on September 29, a Su-27 fighter of the Russian Armed Forces fired two missiles towards a British aircraft flying over the Black Sea. There were about 30 British military personnel on board the plane. If the UK plane were to be shot down, there could be very serious consequences.



Glees argues that Great Britain could invoke the famous Article 5 of the NATO charter, which provides for armed intervention by all countries of the alliance in the event of aggression against any country that is part of it.

If our plane were shot down and our people were killed, we would have to react. Who knows how it would have ended

- said the British professor.

The Russian side explained the incident as technical problems. It was hushed up, but almost a year later, the British press began to actively discuss it again. Probably, in the United Kingdom they are not fully aware of how such a global conflict could end for Great Britain itself and the British people. Otherwise, it would hardly make sense for the British side to again discuss an event that did not lead to casualties and ended without consequences.

    The UK could invoke the famous Article 5 of the NATO Charter

    ***
    Article 5

    “The contracting parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America will be considered an attack against them as a whole and, therefore, agree that in the event of such an armed attack taking place, each them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will help To the Contracting Party subjected or Contracting Parties subjected to such attack, by immediately taking such individual or joint action, WHICH YOU DEEM NECESSARY, including the use of armed force to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic region.

    Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall be immediately reported to the Security Council. Such measures will cease when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security...

      For some reason the theme from "Pirates of the Caribbean" comes to mind. Where the Pirate Code is “only a set of rules and recommendations, not laws”) So here, everyone is talking about the law. But in fact, “whatever it deems necessary.” In fact, the main thing is not the NATO charter, but the determination of its participants.

    England would definitely disappear if the British suddenly decided to fight with Russia, even with the support of NATO. Read Russian nuclear doctrine. One remembered an incident a year ago, others wander around collecting supposedly fragments of Russian UAVs (Romanians), others call Kaliningrad names in German... Why would this be?

    There’s no way I could put the fate of the whole world on the line from some downed plane... belay this is not serious.
    The Anglo-Saxons, as always, are trying to intimidate us with all sorts of nonsense that they themselves have come up with.
    For a world war, you need more compelling reasons than a downed plane... but this incident could well have been a reason for war... smile the conditions for the outbreak of a third world war are not yet ripe for the British.

    Well, that's unlikely. The UK could have applied for NATO to apply this article to it in connection with the incident. But the entire course of recent events convinces us of the reluctance of the NATO countries to fight, so to speak, with their own hands. Yes, and with the readiness to maintain a high-intensity database, not everything is in order, to put it mildly. Therefore, the Britons and Saxons most likely would have been convinced that this was not an act of aggression, just... well, a joke or something. Well, what can you expect from us - “Asian, savage.” fellow

    laughing According to scientific - “psychiatric”, this post-traumatic stress disorder is defined as Delayed-onset PTSD - can manifest itself over time, usually from 3 to 6 months. Before the onset of characteristic symptoms, the patient feels normal and may not even suspect that the disorder is already developing.
    And now, they have a serious mental state, having a super-powerful negative impact on the psyche of British individuals?! Yes

    Simply put, as in the old joke, when I went into the forest on a small route, I met a bear, and at the same time I went on a big one. And after a delay, he got scared of the bear, fell into a stupor, and at home he was already screaming and going through small and big things... he began to worry, be afraid and tormented by past events associated with the bear. wink

    A British analyst said that last year's attack on a British plane by a Russian fighter jet could have started a war.

    Nothing would have happened.
    Unfortunately, when the Turks shot down our plane, and the Turkomans shot the fleeing pilots, Turkey got off with nothing but tomatoes.
    It’s still a shock to me that our vacationers fly there to rest as if nothing had happened, although the persecution of these vacationers and sometimes murders have already begun.
    What is it smeared there that Russian citizens are going there - a dark forest, for me at least.
    When the Jews exposed our Il-20 to air defense missiles, they also didn’t have anything for it, unfortunately.
    So I think that if the small-shaven letak had been shot down, it’s unlikely that Nata would have joined. No one will risk the lives and health of tens of millions of citizens, as well as the integrity of the country, for the sake of thirty people. They would chalk it up to force majeure.
    On the other hand, the small-shaven ones flew not over the “English Channel”, but over the Black Sea, thousands of kilometers from their home. No need to crawl where you weren’t invited.

    That is, Professor Glis (I just want to add a T at the end of his last name) claims that the actions of a Russian fighter carried out in response to a provocation by an English reconnaissance aircraft could lead to war?
    Well done, he should also somehow realize that if the Su-27 had been given the task of taking down the English “cow”, then it would not have needed two missiles, a cannon would have been enough.
    And if both missiles missed the reconnaissance aircraft, then this was done deliberately; missing the RC-135 is a very difficult task, given its dimensions and flight speed.
    And then, why did all our “partners” decide that in any case of their provocative actions, the presumption of innocence should apply to them?
    If you violated the border, you'll get punched in the belly!
    In the 60s, this is exactly what the Soviet Air Force and Air Defense did with their insolent colleagues from NATO.
    And Powers was not the only one shot down over Soviet territory.
    What, short memory?

      Well said.
      But if I.V. Stalin had said so, then the addressee would have tried to make himself small and small and hide under the nearest gossip.
      But in the current realities, after gestures of goodwill and openness to dialogue, these words do not inspire 100% trust.

    This conclusion seems exaggerated to me. War did not break out because of the downing of Korean Airlines Boeing 747 number 007, the downing of the Russian Su-24 in 2015, the downing of Malaysian Airlines, and so on. A possible consequence will only be the supply of weapons to Ukraine without any hesitation or restrictions

    Taking into account the development of electronic reconnaissance means, it is high time to reconsider combat use against both manned aircraft and UAVs. Essentially, both manned aircraft and UAVs directly participate in air defense, providing tactical information to the enemy, and asserting that they are not a party to the conflict. RR planes are soldiers dressed in the uniform of a neutral state in order to avoid responsibility for their hostile actions. The flights take place at the expense of Ukraine and in the interests of the Ukrainian Armed Forces; this is a war between the West and Russia, clearly vile under neutral flags, and therefore more dangerous. It’s time to stop this practice; flights in neutral space for the purpose of providing intelligence to the enemy should be considered hostile, and they should be stopped in the most merciless way, regardless of their identification marks, they should be recognized as Ukrainian.
