US bombers in Norway staged the first provocation against Russia


On the evening of February 26, 2021, two US Air Force B-1B Lancers strategic bombers staged the first provocation against Russia from Norway. The Pentagon confirmed that their missile carriers carried out the first joint training mission of "tactical integration" with the Norwegian Air Force and Navy in the Barents and Norwegian Seas.


The US Department of Defense stressed that Washington's cooperation with allies in the Arctic should strengthen regional security and help deter strategic competitors "from the desire to unilaterally change the existing rules-based order."

What specific ships or vessels of the Norwegian Navy participated in the event is still unknown, but the Kingdom's Air Force was represented by a pair of American-made F-35A stealth fighters.

Before that, three "strategists" B-1B, together with the army and the Swedish Air Force, worked out elements of bombing in Swedish airspace.

In total, on February 22, four B-1Bs from the 7th Bomber Wing, located at the Dyess base, Texas (USA), arrived at the Ørland airfield in Norway. This is the first time such a redeployment to Scandinavia is taking place. She points out that the preparation of American pilots for action in a possible European theater of operations has begun.

Time will tell whether Finland and the Baltic countries will join such trainings.

    And what is the provocation? Did they violate the airspace of the Russian Federation? Anyone can fly over neutral waters.

        The build-up of NATO forces - in particular those of the American itself - near the Russian borders is in itself a provocation.

          Stop. Russia occupies half of the mainland in size. Now what, all the countries bordering on it can neither conduct exercises, nor increase the Armed Forces or saturate them with new weapons? For example, if Russia begins to strengthen its Pacific Fleet, will it be a provocation against the United States? It will be near their borders (near Alaska).

        And what will your friends in the states say if our missiles appear in Cuba again? Will you advise them not to worry too?

          Have you read the article? It's not about the deployment of missiles. Yes, and the Cuban missile crisis was relevant in the 60s, when the Strategic Missile Forces did not yet have reliable means of a global strike.

      The usual journalistic "enticement" is as old as the world. The main thing is the flashy headline, and the content of the article is the tenth thing.

        Russian Tu-95s fly there regularly - no one yells about provocations.

          How they scream. They scream about the "unprofessionalism" of our pilots. This is what they call in ours - a provocation.

            They only "screech" about "unprofessionalism" when planes fly either too close to their ships, or close to their planes. And, in general, they are right - this is really a violation of the rules.

      And when the USSR delivered missiles to Cuba, why did the Amersians raise such a kipesh? According to your logic, this was an internal matter of Cuba and should not have been of interest to the great Ju.

        Moreover, the rockets in Cuba were exactly the answer to the placement of Jupiters in Turkey.

      They do not fly, but practice an attack. Why, when they placed yao in Turkey, no crisis happened, and when the union in response to the cube placed, they rushed to the button? If now the Russian Federation from Cuba or Mexico works out the same maneuvers, there will be a universal stench, threats and sanctions.

    Our bombers, accompanied by the Su-35, can also fly there without violating the borders of neighboring countries.

      And they fly in the Baltic. And then the stench from the neighboring states flies right up to Siberia. Our Atlant came out from Murmansk, so they already have panic in the euro press.

    Ha. Apparently, the anonymous person - it's all about the name. Since nothing is really said

    The plane took off Nato-provocation. Straight from takeoff is called so.
    The antinato plane took off - a worthy deed.

    Strategists of the Russian Aerospace Forces also fly along the coast of Alaska under the supervision of US fighters and nothing - no panic. This is the norm - pilots need to "fly the clock" and maintain their qualifications at the proper level. No need to whip up hysteria, gentlemen. The main thing is not to violate state borders.
