  • US Fighter Jets Intercept Russian Bombers off Alaskan Coast

Tu-95 were in the zone of identification of air defense. The latest bomber incursion reportedly seems to be part of a pattern of Russian nuclear coercion aimed at the United States.

It is reported that the U.S. air force have intercepted the Russian Tu-95 bombers, which were in the zone of identification of air defense.

The US fighter jets did not get closer than 100 meters to the Russian bombers, the Russian Defense Ministry was quoted as saying on Saturday by the RIA news agency.

Two US jets intercepted a pair of Russian bombers in global airspace off the coast of Alaska early Friday morning, according to a statement from NORAD.

F-22 fighters, stationed in Alaska, visibly inhibited and recognized the Russian bombers until they left the recognition zone.

American F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian Tu-95 bomber off the coast of Alaska.

The intercept was first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

Friday's incident comes just over a month after a U.S. Navy P-8 surveillance plane was intercepted in an "unprofessional" manner by a Russian Su-27 fighter jet over the Baltic Sea in early March. The Russian Sukhoi Su-27 jet came within 20 feet of the American P-8 Poseidon in worldwide airspace.
