MOSCOW, July 17 (Itar-Tass) - For the last two days the warplanes of the Long-Range Aviation have made four flights for the patrolling of the Russian borders in the designated area of the snap drills, the press service and information department of the Russian Defence Ministry told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The flight route is passing through the domestic territories of the Sea of Japan (the East Sea) and the Sea of Okhotsk, through the neutral waters in the Pacific Ocean and north of the Japanese Islands. Another three bombers Tu-95MS have made the flights to fix the control targets to check the air defence systems off the Sakhalin Island and in the Sea of Japan (the East Sea).
All flights of the warplanes were made and are being made in strict compliance with the international rules for the use of the air space over the neutral waters, without violating the borders of other countries.
On Tuesday, two Russian strategic bombers Tu-95MS, which performed the training tasks during the combat readiness drills of the troops of the Eastern Military District, were escorted by the fighters of South Korea and the Japan Self-Defense Forces.
The total numerical strength of the troops involved in the snap military exercises makes over 160,000 servicemen, about 5,000 tanks and combat armoured vehicles, 160 warplanes and helicopters of long-range, military transport, fighter, bombing and army aviation, as well as 70 warships and vessels.
The complex snap military exercises of the forces of the Eastern Military District will end on July 20.
