A Russian MiG-31 fighter jet has been scrambled to intercept a US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft, RC-135, flying over the Sea of Chukotsk, the Russian Defence Ministry announced.
“To identify the air target and prevent the violation of Russian airspace, a MiG-31 fighter from the air defence forces of the Pacific Fleet took to the skies. The crew of the Russian fighter identified the air target as a US Air Force RC-135 strategic reconnaissance aircraft and escorted it over the waters of the Sea of Chukotsk,”The Russian Defense Ministry said.
Russian MiG-31 fighter jets scrambled to intercept US reconnaissance aircraft over Sea of Chukotsk. In the early morning on May 6th. Biden has shown a pattern of poking and antagonizing Russia. Relationship’s with Russia who holds the second biggest nuclear stockpile in the world, was at an all time high under Trump’s administration. This pattern continued early this morning when Biden and his administration ordered American Pilots to fly over Russia in restricted Russia airspace. So far the only reports available are that Russia did indeed send jets to intercept the American planes. If a Russian jet illegally entered US airspace as we just did under Biden’s command to Russia we would immediately intercept and quickly engage. No reports on conflict have come out so as of now it is pretty safe to assume there have been no causalities. This will not be this case if Biden continues to war monger for his own profit around the world.
