Su-30 pilot filmed the interception of three French aircraft over the Black Sea

On May 11, 2021, the Russian Ministry of Defense informed that the Su-30 multipurpose fighter of the Russian Aerospace Forces intercepted three French aircraft over the neutral waters of the Black Sea - a pair of Dassault Mirage 2000 fighters and a Boeing C-135 Stratolifter tanker. The intruders quickly approached the Russian border, but the Southern Military District reacted appropriately.

The Su-30 was promptly raised into the sky and sent to identify approaching targets, as well as to prevent possible illegal entry into Russian airspace. After the identification by the Su-30 crew, the French aircraft were escorted for some time. At the same time, the pilot of the Russian fighter videotaped what was happening so that the French "partners", who suddenly fell in love with the Black Sea, did not begin to accuse the meeting side of wrong actions.

It should be noted that the interception was carried out in accordance with international rules, and France cannot have any claims against Russia in principle. But Moscow may ask Paris that the French planes have forgotten off the Russian coast. Moreover, on September 6, 2020 in the Black Sea came in even the reconnaissance ship Dupuy de Lome A759 of the French Navy.

Note that the activity of the NATO bloc near the borders of Russia is increasing every year. For example, in 2020, Russian air defense radars identified and escorted more than 2 million air targets, which is 40% more than in 2019.

      what could be the interception?

      Before you get outraged, ask what the concept of "interception" means in aviation.

                Why they refused, they are quite capable of flying. Yes, and “Tridents are quite enough to strike a crushing retaliation.

                  Of the last 8 launches, 4 were unsuccessful. They fly so-so.

                    Don't worry, they will fix it. There are always unsuccessful launches. And most importantly, there is always a guaranteed and irresistible retaliation by the Tridents.

                  You can immediately delete most of the Tridents, because all US nuclear submarines in bases and under repair will be destroyed, and for the rest, the RF missile defense systems will be worked out.

                    That's how they immediately took and destroyed :))) Yes, and on duty there are always enough of them to strike back with unacceptable consequences for the aggressor. It is simply impossible to repel a massive retaliation. Patriotism is, of course, commendable, but you still don't need to write outright nonsense ...

                      Do you think that a massive strike by the Strategic Missile Forces of the Russian Federation is seeds ?! We also know where to shoot, so that only memories remain from the United States, and their retaliatory strike will be reflected by the missile defense system of the Russian Federation, these systems were not bad in the USSR, but now there are new ones in the Russian Federation ... So I would not advise the United States to continue to be impudent and carry out anti-Russian policy, it will be more expensive for them.

                        You seem to be a teenager from the middle classes. A massive strike is impossible to deflect to anyone and no air defense systems are able to do this, and when an attempt at a nuclear attack on the United States, Russia will only be remembered. So I would not advise Russia to be impudent and pursue an anti-American policy. it will become more expensive for her.

                        You Ukrainians remind me of a cartoon about Mowgli and that jackal that barked all the time from behind Sherkhan's back. Your masters from the United States are developing new weapons precisely in order to be able to destroy countries such as the Russian Federation or China with impunity, so according to your logic, only snotty youngsters serve in the Pentogon and the US government ... By the way, you wrote to the colonel from the Russian Federation, he is 42 years old. He's already joking at people like you ... No need to copy the Jews and call your opponent POC, if you are far from the topic ... Cook cabbage soup better, maybe you understand this better than in the Strategic Missile Forces and ABM.
