American B-52 strategic bombers simulated entry into the airspace over the Black Sea. This was reported by Avia.pro, noting that the US Air Force aircraft took off from an air base in the UK, after which it headed east over the Mediterranean Sea to Turkey. In Turkey, the aircraft made a U-turn in a northerly direction, demonstrating a U-turn towards the Black Sea. But a few minutes later he changed course already in a westerly direction.
Russian experts believe that the US Air Force command still did not dare to launch a serious provocation, since there were risks that the plane would be hit by Russian missiles as soon as it appeared over the waters of the Black Sea. Nevertheless, it showed that the United States can aggravate the situation. And this proves that American F-18 fighters fly daily near the borders of Ukraine.
It is worth noting that NATO instructors have already begun to train Ukrainian pilots, since, according to a number of sources, American fighters will be handed over to Ukraine in the fall.
