The United States and NATO members have been steadily increasing their military activity near Russian borders.

On June 26, Russian fighter jets intercepted two US spy planes near the Russian airspace over the Black Sea.  The Russian Ministry of Defense released a video showing the interception of a US Navy P-8, a USAF KC-135 refueling and a RC-135 reconnaissance plane . According to the Russian side. a Su-30 fighter from the Southern Military District responded to the sitaution and “approached from a safe distance” to identify the aircraft.

On June 27, Seven Russian long-range antisubmarine Tu-142 aircraft made scheduled flights in international airspace over the Barents and Norwegian Seas as well as over the northern Pacific Ocean. They were shadowed by F-22 fighter jets of the US Air Force and F-16 fighter jets of Norway’s Air Force at certain stages of their route, according to Russia.

“On June 27, 2020, three long-range antisubmarine Tu-142 aircraft made a scheduled flight over the Barents and Norwegian Seas,” the Defense Ministry said. “Four more long-range antisubmarine Tu-142 aircraft trained missions over neutral waters of the northern part of the Pacific Ocean. US Air Force’s F-22 fighter jets escorted [the Russian aircraft] at certain stages of the route.”

“They were supported by MiG-31 fighter interceptors in the close zone. The flights continued for around 11 hours,” the military added.
