U.S. B-52 Bombers Complete Training Mission In Ukrainian Airspace

Three U.S. B-52 strategic bombers have completed a training flight in Ukrainian airspace, according to a statement by U.S. Air Force command in Europe. According to the DefPost military website, the September 4 mission was the first-ever of its kind. The bombers are based in the U.S. state of North Dakota but are part of a deployment of six B-52s to a Royal Air Force base in Fairford, England. The purpose of the mission over Ukraine was to provide in-air training and to improve “collective defense capabilities…to deter Russia and assure Allies and partners,” the statement said. A statement from the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said that Ukrainian Su-27 and MiG-29 fighters rendezvoused with U.S. bombers at the country’s border with Poland and accompanied them over Ukrainian territory to the Sea of Azov and back. The Russian Defense Ministry said that eight fighter aircraft were scrambled “to prevent U.S. aircraft from violating Russian airspace” in the regions of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

Excellent. Ukraine and the US are currently engaged in improving a Ukrainian air base to accommodate the largest USAF planes.

Maybe a tad offtopic here but why is there so many mentions of Moscovites?
There are other cities in Russia, it would be like complaining about Americans by saying they're all New Yorkers.

Just an odd observation.

That is Mr. Stalin. One of our pro-Russia shills. I have no idea why he posts the way he does.
