WSJ: The British “spotted” Russian bombers near Scotland

76

North of Scotland on Wednesday, two Russian Tu-95 bomber were spotted. Such information with reference to the British Department of Defense appeared in The Wall Street Journal.






It is reported that the Royal Air Force had to alarm two fighter "Typhoon" in order to establish the type and identity of the aircraft.


“Russian military airplanes remained in international airspace all the time, and they have every right to do so,” said a spokesman for the British Defense Ministry, quoted by Ino-TV.


"Russian military aviation never entered the sovereign airspace of the United Kingdom without permission, ”he added.


The Ministry of Defense also reported that such incidents were not rare: last year this happened eight times.

The authorities of the United Kingdom are not inclined to dramatize the situation, despite the fact that the event took place against the background of exacerbation of tension in the international arena after "Russia's military invasion of Ukraine."

        And they do not need to invade. If necessary, cruise missiles with nuclear charges will invade.

          England has always been the eternal enemy of Russia ... It was England that pushed Bonapartist France and Russia, it was England that insisted on the speedy entry of Russia into the First World War against Kaiser Germany (how we all remember this sad ), it was England that raised and set Hitler's Germany against the USSR ... The British always want to make their history with someone else's blood (as well as their "Burp" USA) by fencing themselves off from all the English Channel. Favorite proverb of the British: OVER LA MANCHEM FOG, CONTINENT IN ISOLATION ... laughing I am glad and proud that Our "Bears" and "White Swans" remind the motherland of "Sir Gay" Elton John that the English Channel will not save them today ... PS And it would be nice to move the capital of Great Britain to Edinburgh, the Scots hate the British at the genetic level. And the Scots are very close to the Russian mentality wink

    Damn, to detect the "Bear" ("Bear" - class. NATO TU-95) with a 50-meter wingspan and double 3-meter propellers, of course, is difficult, I don't know what kind of radars they have there)) Most likely they led our bears from the moment of take-off and passed along as they moved. And the fact that the Typhoons were raised is normal. Ours would have done the same if the B-52 flew by somewhere.
    I think it was a demonstration of the flag and opportunities, so as not to relax. And rightly so, many hot heads cools at a time. Flyers - Respect.

    Everyone understands what TU-95 or TU-160, for example. Now there is no need to enter the airspace protected by the missile defense system and the air force of the potential enemy. Everything is much simpler. And if we recall the American studies of a high-altitude explosion of nuclear weapons, it can easily be concluded that even if the munition equipped with a nuclear warhead does not reach the target, then at least within a radius of 800 miles (according to U.S. research in 1962, now this figure more significantly) the entire electronic and significant part of the electrical infrastructure will be paralyzed, and this is precious time. Satellites that cannot complete their tasks and maintain output characteristics, and, after a short time, cease to exist due to catastrophic failures of electronic components, will fall under the influence of high-altitude nuclear weapons.
