There was a video of the flight of the Tu-160 rocket carriers over the Baltic

On the evening of July 15, 2019, the Russian Ministry of Defense informed the public that two Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-160 made a planned 7-hour flight over neutral (international) waters of the Baltic Sea. At the same time, on certain sections of the route, the flight of Russian "strategists" was accompanied by F-16 Danish Air Force, F-18 Finnish Air Force and JAS39 Gripen Swedish Air Force.

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense published on its official page on the social network Twitter a short video of the stages of this flight. It is clarified that after completing the assigned task (patrolling), the "strategists" successfully returned to their base airfields.

It should be noted that on July 15, 2019, the Finnish Air Force was informed that they had flown their Hornet fighters to determine the group of Russian aircraft over the Baltic Sea.

The flight of Russian "strategists" over the Baltic Sea caused another hysteria among Russophobes in different countries. They were very excited about the two Tu-160s flying over the Baltic Sea, against the background of the ongoing NATO exercises, at the borders of Russia (recently Baltops-2019 in the Baltic Sea and Sea Breeze-2019 in the Black Sea). Therefore, we recall that recently The Su-27 Russian Air Force intercepted a US Air Force intelligence officer over the Black Sea, and the Su-24 was conducted by the Spanish aircraft carrier Juan Carlos I, which “got lost” in the Baltic.

    And what is the precedent? Permissible flight zone ... This is not Hudson Bay ... They can fly at least every day and several times ...

      The fact of the matter is that there is no precedent. This is the usual routine of years since the 50s.
      The USA accompanies the USSR and, after the destruction of the Union, Russia. And vice versa.
      Therefore, the news from scratch.
