US destroyer Donald Cook meets Russian Su-24 again


The Baltic Air Force F-16 fighter, based in the Baltic states, was alerted and sent to intercept a group of Russian tactical front-line bombers Su-24, which were sent to the USS Donald Cook destroyer in the Baltic Sea. This was reported by the press service of the NATO bloc, posting a video and clarifying that the incident occurred on April 17, 2020.


A group of Russian fighters appeared in the sky above the Baltic Sea. The planes were approaching the destroyer "Donald Cook" of the US Navy. For interception from the Šiauliai airfield (Republic of Lithuania), the Belgian Air Force F-16 fighter was raised. He intercepted a group of Russian Air Force fighters over the sea

- said in a statement "peace-loving" Alliance.

It is noted that the mentioned video was shot from the F-16 cockpit, which is located in Lithuania as part of the “mission to protect airspace on the eastern flank of NATO (Baltic Air Policing)”. The footage shows how the F-16 accompanies Russian aircraft, including two Su-24s, armed with X-25 air-to-surface missiles. The video was accompanied by praise to the Belgian pilot and a statement on the readiness of NATO aviation, located in the Baltic states, to perform tasks 24/7.


It should be recalled that the American destroyer Donald Cook is not the first time appearing in reports related to the Russian Su-24. For example, in April 2016, the Americans announced that a pair of Su-24 allegedly swept over this ship at an altitude of 30 meters. Moreover, the Russians allegedly scared the Americans for two days in a row. Then the Americans called the behavior of the Russians "not in accordance with the accepted standards of behavior of the armed forces in international air and sea spaces."

At the same time, the Americans do not specify that their warships generally “forgot” in the Baltic near the borders of Russia. We remind you that according to the repeated statements of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Russian planes carry out their movements in international airspace only in strict accordance with existing rules.

    Then you need to scare the US Navy, so that they would run away from the Russian Air Force from fear, so you can save ammunition.

            Yes, they are unlikely to tell anything there - about the “exploits” Khibin was told only in yellow waste paper. Relevant services did not report anything like this.

              Believe me, they will tell ... for you, they will tell everything ... they will show .... they will treat you with tea ... The same wise men wrote about exploits - they earn money with this ..... You do not read the yellow press, and especially Speed ​​info - your intelligence level should rise by 2 units ...

                I didn’t read such waste paper. And about the “exploits” Khibin wrote on such “respected” resources as VO and, in fact, the one on which we are located. And with regards to intelligence - maybe you should first check yours, you see, it will still be below average.

                  Resource VO - became liberal-Jewish-Ukrainian .. There are few sensible people left ... and they are slipping into a tabloid newspaper .... making money .... They smelled the smell of cheap money ... They don’t pay for patriotism, but against the Russian Federation - there * the State Department * will try to wind up visiting people .... You go away, you live far away - but you come to us ... Why? But because you are not needed THERE and are looking for interlocutors here)))

                    I come to you, as a rule, when there is little work on duty, so time passes faster. But I must say that I come not only to you. I go to both English and Hebrew in the same way.

                      So what did I write about? I’m right ... So you’re running around the sites - either an employee of * services *, or simply an unnecessary Jew ... And I think that it’s also dirty in essence.

                        What did you write about? You seem to have trouble understanding what is written. I repeat for those poorly understood - when you are on duty and there are no calls, this means that you have this free time and you can kill him as you like. So I kill him on such "patriotic" sites with such ridiculous "patriots" as you.

    So, next time the Yankees need to send the Su-24M to intercept the destroyer under the cover of the Su-30MS, so that the next (brave) Belgian, whose ancestors did not show great heroism in the battles with the Nazis, needed diapers ...

    Given the number of trousers in the Donald Cook destroyer crew’s team, I propose changing his name to Donald Pook.
