The US military complained of a dangerous interception, perfect Su-35

Despite the fact that the interception of foreign aircraft is a standard and widespread practice, they are sometimes used as an excuse to exert pressure or incite an international scandal.

The US Sixth Fleet press service announced a dangerous interception of the US P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft, which was carried out by a Russian Su-35 fighter over the Mediterranean Sea.

The US military complains that the Russian fighter not only approached the American plane three times in three hours, but also flew at high speed right in front of the nose of the Poseidon, thereby creating a wave of turbulence that hit American pilots.

The US military department insists that the P-8A Poseidon made its flight under international law, and Russian pilots created a dangerous situation with their actions.

Recall that the combat aircraft of the United States and NATO on a regular basis rise to intercept Russian aircraft. Recently, the greatest activity has been observed during the flights of Russian military aircraft in the sky over the Baltic and in the Pacific.

At the same time, the military department of the Russian Federation, unlike its Western "colleagues", is not satisfied with tantrums about this.

    Mattresses have nothing to fly where they don’t need to, then there will be no reason to intercept their planes, first they go where they don’t ask them, and then they complain and whine to the whole world that the Russians are to blame, this is a favorite Anglo-Saka manner of behavior, first, do something stealthily, and then after getting another kick in the ass, complain and whine around the world blaming Russia for everything.

    Both sides have been doing this since the 50s. But according to the protocol must express a note.
