"Three US Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bombers from the 5th Bomber Wing of Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, conducted vital training on Friday to integrate with Ukrainian fighters into Ukrainian airspace," the report said.
Yesterday's mission is part of a long-planned deployment of six B-52s at RAF Fairford Air Force Base in Gloucestershire. The mission demonstrated how advanced aircraft and crews, such as in B-52 units, provide collective defense capabilities for the United States, NATO allies and partners, and strategic and operational capabilities to contain Russia.
As we reported before, today, September 4, US Air Force Boeing B-52 military aircraft entered Ukrainian airspace for the first time.
The department noted that American strategic bombers are escorting fighters from the tactical aviation brigades of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of the Su-27 and MiG-29.
