Russian Defense Ministry prepares tests of unknown types of missiles


Tensions between Russia and NATO in the Arctic region are steadily increasing. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has issued a NOTAM, a notice to flight crews, which refers to the "affected area of ​​Russian missiles" on the border of the Barents and Norwegian Seas, writes the Norwegian Internet publication The Barents Observer.


The short warning says the Russian military has announced the closure of a large area north of mainland Norway for flights. The ban will be valid for the period 18-24 February 2021. Dangerous territory extends in international (neutral) airspace along the 24th meridian, up to Bear Island.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is preparing to conduct rocket firing at its favorite test site. But what types of missiles will be tested this time is unknown. Norwegian Armed Forces spokesman Major Brignar Stordal confirmed this information.

Allied aircraft do not routinely conduct training east of this line due to voluntary Norwegian restrictions

- said Christian Otland, senior researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Defense Research (FFI).

The expert suggested that the time and place were not chosen by the Russians by chance. In the near future, four US Air Force B-1 strategic bombers are to arrive for the first time at Erland Air Base in southern Norway. The activity of Russians is connected with this, the media from Norway summed up.

    Russian Defense Ministry prepares tests of unknown types of missiles

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is preparing to conduct rocket firing at its favorite test site. But what types of missiles will be tested this time is unknown.

    - Damn, the Americans have a very successful Trident rocket ... - Our Bulava still can't reach its level ...
    - Most likely ... our submarine will be shot by "Bulaba" / ... - And that's why four strategic bombers B-1 of the US Air Force will arrive there .... - this is not clear ... - Something serious is twisting. ..

    I don’t know who worries about it or how, but the rockets should fly in comfortable conditions: they should not be hit by planes. At the exercises.

    The title is clumsy! And incomprehensible. It will be correct: the RF Ministry of Defense is preparing unknown types of missiles for testing.
    If the existing title is to be believed, then MO is preparing "unknown types".

    Well, nothing special. It has always been that way. Warnings are sent, the area is closed during the shooting. Support vessels are being brought into the region. And the fact that the Norgs burns let them start a Teflon pan. And what happens when such warnings are ignored, it is better to ask the captain of the "Ukrainian steamer" Pavel Vereshchagin. I entered a closed area and got on board a P-35, albeit with an inert warhead. Yes, anyone is interested in all this on the network.

      Yes, it's some kind of tradition for Odessa captains to receive a blank in the superstructure.
