The State Duma of the Russian Federation promised to respond to the flights of American military aircraft over the Black Sea, registered in the last five days. First Deputy Head of the State Duma Defense Committee, Hero of the Russian Federation Andrei Krasov stated this in a comment to Interfax agency on July 27.
“The actions of American reconnaissance aircraft will not remain without reaction. Russian pilots are acting professionally. American aircraft are changing course and flying away from the Russian border,” Andrei Krasov said.
He stated an increase in the frequency of flights of U.S. reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea. According to him, they are often reconnaissance or provocative flights.
Krasov expressed his indignation at the fact that the American reconnaissance aircraft was registered over the Black Sea on July 27, far from the borders of his country.
On Monday, the Russian military servicemen reported on the interception of an American reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea by Su-27 fighter.
The Russian military also informed about the flights of military aircraft Su-27 to “intercept” American reconnaissance aircraft over the Black Sea on 23 and 24 July.
