The Japanese Ministry of Defense issued a statement that the Air Force fighters of the Land of the Rising Sun were urgently raised into the sky for the reason that two Russian strategic bombers Tu-95 were approaching the air border of the Japanese archipelago. Reports about it LifeNews.
It is reported that the Russian "strategists" did not violate the airspace of Japan, but flew from the air border of this state at a very close distance. The flight took place over the Sea of Japan to its borders with the East China Sea, as well as along the east coast of Japan in the direction of the Kuril Ridge and Sakhalin.
In the Ministry of Defense of Japan, this caused alarm. The Japanese Foreign Ministry, as usual, prepares a note of protest in connection with the appearance of Russian strategic bombers in the immediate vicinity of the Japanese borders. Does this mean that spying Japanese submarines near the maritime borders of the Russian Federation (the Pacific Fleet seafarers recently discovered such a boat) for Tokyo is normal, and Russian “strategists” at Japan’s air borders are not? ..
