Tu-95MS bombers raised Japan’s concern




The Japanese government, through diplomatic channels, plans to express “concern” to the Russian authorities over the fact that previously two Russian strategic bomber had made a flyby around the main Japanese territory.

Reports appeared in the Japanese media referring to the country's defense ministry that on Tuesday two Russian Tu-95MS bomber made a flight around Japan, without violating its airspace. The flight lasted about 19 hours.

Bombers entered neutral airspace near Nagasaki and then flew from south to north to the Pacific Ocean. In the airspace over the sea in the area of ​​the cities of Wakkanai and Kushiro on the northern island of Hokkaido, they were joined by two tankers Il-78, which made refueling in the air. After that, all four aircraft flew in the direction of Russia.

The air forces of Japan’s self-defense alarm raised several fighters into the air to escort Russian aircraft and prevent violations of Japan’s airspace. Earlier, Japan also asked the Russian Federation for clarification in connection with reports of the intention of the Russian Air Force to conduct air force exercises in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, near the Japanese control zone.

It was reported that Moscow notified the International Civil Organization aviation ICAO that closes a vast area in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk for civilian flights from September 7 to the end of this week with the aim of conducting exercises in this area at an altitude of 4800-7500 meters.

    Nagasakins still experience fear when they hear-guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuul bully And so TU-95 can be used as a psychological weapon with their noise background, flying 50 meters above the territory of a likely enemy, the consequences will be like nuclear weapons wink

      No need to prove anything to the Japanese, they now have a lot of energy and money to put in! But maintaining our Air Force on alert is simply necessary, but what happens to countries that do not keep their Air Force on alert can be seen in Libya!

    What can I say - they are the eternal geopolitical enemy - that's all! We must always remember that with the weakness of our state, they will always come and take our far east
    Moreover, this is complicated by their historically established "Nazi" mentality and historically cultivated hostility towards Russia

    Exactly the same concern could be expressed by our Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the launch of several fighters. Japanese fighters of the type interfere with the exercises of the Russian Air Force!

    Come on, you ... Take the place of the japs ​​... Two planes fly near the border, from which, if anything happens, anything can fall out, except for confetti ... Considering two cases when Japan has already fallen out, this reaction is quite predictable.
    Especially since these are our planes.
    So everything is normal, just the level of consumption of diapers has slightly increased ... Hence the concern.
