MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) -Tu-95MS strategic bombers will be engaged in patrolling skies within the framework of the large-scale snap drills testing combat readiness of Russia’s Eastern Military District and Central Military District, the Defence Ministry’s press service said.
The aviation base of the Long-Range Aviation deployed in Belogorsk, the Amur region, takes part in the snap drills.
“The personnel of the aviation base prepared Tu-95MS bombers for their strategic deterrence mission in the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk,” the press service said. “Seven Su-7SM fighters deployed at airfields in Dzemgi (Komsomolsk-on-Amur), in Sokolovka (Ussuriysk) and Elizovo (the Kamchatka Peninsula) will be engaged to escort Tu-95MS.”
Crews plan to master their cooperation, flight preparation and long-distance flights over a featureless area.
The Defence Ministry said all flights of Russia’s Air Force are carried out in strict compliance with the international rules on the use of airspace over neutral waters without violating other countries’ borders.
