“On the morning of September 4, the bombers took off from the Ferford airbase in the UK, flew over the territory of Europe, where they were accompanied by fighters of the air forces of NATO countries and key partners of the Alliance. Ukrainian military pilots met B-52 on the Polish border, escorted through Ukraine to the coast of the Azov Sea and in the opposite direction," the message says.

Patrolling is planned for NATO countries and partners. It is likely that such cooperation in the field of collective security will continue in the future.
