BALASHIKHA, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Strategic bombers of Russia’s Air Force have not violated any state’s territorial waters during patrolling, Air Force Commander-in-Chief Viktor Bondarev told reporters on Monday.
“We respect the sovereignty of all world countries, and not a single strategic bomber has entered anybody’s territorial waters,” he said, commenting on a number of foreign media reports on the issue.
The Russian Air Force commander said Russian planes “have flown, fly and will continue to fly.” If faced with claims on the violation of the borders of territorial waters, the Russian side will promptly present the objective control data, navigation reports and satellite images.
“These are their problems, we do not interfere with their actions and I don’t ask why their B-52 planes have been redeployed somewhere. We don’t interfere in each other’s affairs,” Bondarev said.
