Inspectors of the United States and France will perform an observation flight over the territory of Russia

In the period from 3 to 8 in March, within the framework of the implementation of the International Treaty on Open Skies, the joint mission of the United States and France will perform an observation flight over the territory of the Russian Federation on a US observation plane OC-135B.


It will pass along the agreed route in the presence of Russian specialists on board, who will monitor compliance with the agreed flight parameters and application of the monitoring equipment provided for by the Treaty.

Observation aircraft OS-135B refers to the type of aircraft not equipped with any weapons. The aircraft and the surveillance equipment installed on us (aerial cameras) underwent an international certification, which was also attended by Russian specialists, which precludes the use of technical equipment not covered by the Open Skies Treaty.

      The Open Skies Treaty, DON is a multilateral international treaty signed on March 24, 1992 in Helsinki by representatives of 23 OSCE member states. The purpose of the treaty is to help build confidence between states through improving mechanisms for monitoring military activities and compliance with existing arms control treaties. The agreement establishes an open skies regime, the purpose of which is to provide an opportunity for its participants to fly over each other's territories.
      To date, the parties to the Agreement are 33 states. The Russian Federation ratified the Open Skies Treaty of 26 on May 2001.

        Actually already. Here the Americans are threatening that soon the borders will be closed, and we are talking about the open sky.

    Well, men, well, you can’t get anywhere here, of course such a situation infuriates, but there will be a huge reason for West European trolling if we refuse such overflights, especially in our presence.

      And this is an idea laughing Inflate half a million tanks, they take pictures, throw a hysterics, and at this moment it is necessary (sincerely surprised) to invite them to the ground to make sure that there are no tanks (tanks, of course, to blow off and hide), then repeat this scenario substituting inflatable tanks for the spy satellite, international flights and in general any curious photographic lens, and for every cry invite "to check for yourself" that there are no tanks.
      I wonder after what round their brain will break, in an attempt to understand where and how to hide half a million tanks so quickly? wassat

        To begin with, we will pay $ 7 billion for half a million inflatable tanks and we will already laugh at us.

            In 2011, the cost of one inflatable layout of the tank left 490 thousand rubles. These are official numbers.

    In connection with the events in Ukraine, Russia could temporarily postpone observation flights over its territory.

    That's where you need inflatable military equipment and fake radars made from household microwave ovens.

    Ukraine declared the sky over its country to be prohibited for flights of military aircraft. We must offer them to fly over Ukraine, well, and allow the Ukrainians to bring down this piece of iron over their territory.

    It’s strange, somehow, that they fly over our territory eight or twelve times a year, and we don’t hear anything about our flights over their territory. only from unverified sources that flew a couple of times somewhere away from their borders! ??? sad

    And for what disrespectful reason, they did not simultaneously report the flights of our inspectors over the territory of France and the USA? What kind of impermissible one-sidedness?
