This reconnaissance flight was carried out in accordance with the Open Skies Treaty. The Russian side has received all relevant notifications. In addition, there were six Russian observers on board the aircraft.

Defense spokeswoman Jamie Davis recalled that the previous time a similar action under the Open Skies Treaty was held in November 2017. Davis explained that such a long break was due to tensions between the two countries.

It should be noted that the Open Skies Treaty was signed in Helsinki in the spring of 1992. It is attended by 23 countries that are members of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. According to the document, military aircraft of some participating countries can conduct reconnaissance flights over the territories of other countries.
