Blaming the Russian Federation for "provocative flights" over Europe, the United States resorted to a policy of double standards, since they themselves send spy planes to the borders of China, reports RIA News with reference to the edition of The National Interest.

Media: accusing Russia of provocations, Americans resort to double standards


“America should pay attention to its own actions before condemning the actions of rival powers,” the magazine notes.

The publication emphasizes that, despite the loud headlines in the Western press, “in most cases there was no talk of any violation of the airspace of European countries by the Russian Federation, officials admit that there was nothing illegal.” Even NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg stated that “Russian planes were close to NATO’s borders, but the number of“ attacks ”was very limited.

The author of the article believes that “many could expect consistency in the assessment of“ provocative ”maneuvers from the US and its allies, but instead the US is resorting to openly double standards when it comes to the actions of their own armed forces.”

The magazine cites for example a number of episodes describing the relationship between the United States and China. “China called on the United States and its allies from Japan and South Korea not to violate the borders of the Beijing Air Defense Identification Zone in the South China Sea and to provide information on any of their flights nearby. Washington didn’t just go the other way, but China refused to recognize the legitimacy of this zone, ”the author writes.

In addition, U.S. airplanes constantly fly in close proximity to the air borders of China, which has already led to a number of incidents. However, Washington denies all allegations, arguing that his aviation Does not violate Chinese borders.

According to the author, if the United States has the right to send airplanes to spy on the Chinese military, the same actions, only in relation to the neighboring NATO countries, Russia has the right to carry out. At the same time, he nevertheless expressed the hope that countries "will find a way to reduce the level of tension."

    "Accusing the Russian Federation of" provocative flights "over Europe, the United States is resorting to a policy of double standards, since they themselves send spy planes to the borders of China,"

    So this is a common thing for them.

      If the Chinese have already filled up one "Raptor" at least ...

      It is likely that the hints of the Chinese at the 2008 air show in Juhai that the Chinese J-10 fighter shot down the F-22 are not so far from the truth.

      As it became known during the exhibition, in the summer of 2007, the J-10 managed to shoot down an American 5th generation multirole fighter F-22. Yes, yes, the same one - built using the "Stealth" technology, equipped with the most modern onboard equipment and the most expensive fighter in the world. The air battle took place over the Taiwan Strait, when an F-22, following in its air group, allegedly accidentally flew into the airspace of the PRC. True, at the same time, the Chinese command also had to raise the Su-30 link into the sky, which during this incident cut off the rest of the American Air Force vehicles from the intruder. The downed Raptor fell into the sea, after which the owners of the territory tried to lift the fallen fighter. And the F-22 pilot, who ejected safely, was "quietly" handed over by the Chinese to the American authorities by mutual agreement of the parties.

      Place of events Participants in the battle Result of the battle
      Version -1 Taiwan Strait J-10 (2 units) and Su-30MKK (5 units) / F-22 (3 units) J-10 shot down one F-22
      Version -2 Taiwan Strait J-10 (2 units) and Su-30MKK (5 units) / F-22 (3 units) Su-30MKK shot down one F-22
      Version -3 Taiwan Strait J-10 (2 units) and Su-30MKK (5 units) / F-22 (3 units) F-22 was damaged
      Version -4 Taiwan Strait Su-30MKK (5 units) / F-22 (3 units) Su-30MKK shot down one F-22
      Version -5 Sea of ​​Japan J-10 (2 units) and Su-30MKK (5 units) / F-22 (3 units) J-10 shot down one F-22

      There is another version of this incident: a group of F-22 performed assigned tasks over the Taiwan Strait, after which one of the aircraft separated from the group. This aircraft invaded the airspace of the PRC in order to check the country's air defense forces in the Taiwan region. A Su-30 flight (5 units) and a pair of J-10s were raised to intercept the Raptor. But unlike the previous version, it was the Su-30 that came out victorious in this battle, and the victory was given to the J-10 in order to promote the aircraft to the foreign market (it has already become known about the possibility of supplying these aircraft to Pakistan and Iran) and raising the prestige of the armed forces China.

      In general, experts from different countries are skeptical of this story and claim that this result of an air battle between the US fighter and its Chinese colleagues is not possible, although they do not discard the fact of the possibility of such a collision.

          Well, I heard a lot about the shooting down of the "raptor" by the Chinese, but as you know: there is no body, no matter. "And here is the next news from our American and Japanese" friends ":
          The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation declares that the planes performed a scheduled flight

          Two IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft of Pacific Fleet naval aviation on Monday caused the suspension of joint US and Japanese military exercises in the Sea of ​​Japan. American and Japanese fighter jets were raised to intercept them.
          The largest military exercises in the history of the USA and Japan began on Monday in the Sea of ​​Japan and the Pacific Ocean in the region of the Japanese island of Okinawa, they will last until December 10.
          However, on the first day, maneuvers were suspended due to two Russian anti-submarine aircraft.

          The Ministry of Defense of Japan reported that on Monday in the Sea of ​​Japan in the area of ​​the Noto Peninsula, the enemy’s attack was repelled, in particular, the interception by ships of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces and the US Navy of a ballistic missile. During the maneuvers in the airspace appeared two Russian IL-38, which circled the territory, they were in the air for several hours.

          According to Japanese media reports, the exercises were suspended due to fears that top-secret information might be intercepted by Russian aircraft.

          Today, it was also revealed to Yoshito Sengoku, Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan, that Japanese and American F-38 fighter jets were lifted to intercept IL-15 anti-submarine aircraft.

          It is known that Russian anti-submarine aircraft belonged to the naval aviation of the Pacific Fleet. This was stated by the official representative of the Pacific Fleet. "IL-38 aircraft, which are referred to in foreign media reports, are serving in the Pacific Fleet's naval aviation units. They performed scheduled flights in the area of ​​daily fleet activities," said Roman Martov, head of the Pacific Fleet's press service. He also stressed that "there were no violations of international rules for the use of airspace and flight rules on the Russian side."

          The appearance of foreign aircraft during large-scale military exercises to collect information and intelligence is common. However, their appearance directly above the training area is an exceptional precedent, according to the Ministry of Defense of Japan.

    The USA is doing what it wants and do not dare to judge them, Russia is not doing anything, is not thinking of doing, but it is possible to do so. The world is in danger, democracy must strike otherwise kapets. This applies not only to our country.

    NATO officials report that they intercepted our aircraft in 2014 400 - one and a half times more than in the past.
    Including 100 - near the republics of the Baltic states - 3 times more.
    All interceptions were carried out over neutral waters - well, isn’t it disastrous ?!
    One of the unusual cases - the other day, the interception of a pair of our Tu-95MS by Portuguese fighters ...
    A few photos on the topic:

    They can bomb anyone without the sanctions of any world communities, and Russian planes cannot just fly close to the NATO borders ...

    And let them fly, the main thing in the event of an invasion is to shoot down, without looking at the different Security Councils of the OSCE, etc.

    Sorry broke intelligence. operation. But our IL-38 could probably bring the most valuable info on Aegis from the training area. Yes, and the Chinese partners could give a fuss. So it would fly according to the schedule: the day we, the other tangerines. You see, the Americans would not have conducted drills with the Japanese to intercept the BR. bully

    Ours are no longer just flying. They stupidly troll mattresses. Now in the cover of the bears MIG-31 set. As soon as the T-50s go to the troops, I won’t be surprised that they will be put on a raid. This is where the diarrhea begins with the separation of bricks.
