Fighters of three NATO countries escorted Russian bombers

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Fighters from three NATO countries at once accompanied a pair of Russian Tu-22M3 bombers over the Black Sea.

According to the NATO Allied Air Command, first two Romanian MiG-21s flew to meet the planes of the military aviation complex of the Russian Federation.

Then they gave way to the MiG-29 fighters of Bulgaria. Later, the Tu-22M3 turned towards the airspace of Turkey. The Republican Air Force raised F-16 fighters to meet them. They accompanied the Russians until they turned north.

Recall, on May 19, the Russia airborne forces reported that two Tu-22M3 long-range bombers completed a planned flight over the Black Sea. Fighting vehicles spent about 5 hours in the air and flew over 4.5 thousand kilometers. The military specifically specified that the aircraft of the Aerospace Forces strictly followed all international rules.
