The RAF rushed to intercept Russian nuclear aircraft as Boris savagely attacked Putin’s threats


The RAF rushed to intercept Russian nuclear aircraft as Boris savagely attacked Putin’s threats.

The British typhoons were pulled out of Lossiemouth, Scotland, and Coningsby, Lincolnshire on Friday. They were accompanied by a refueling plane from Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, in response to two Russian bombers.

According to the Defense Ministry, two Russian Tu-160 ‘White Swan’ bombers entered “the UK area of ​​interest” on Friday.

In a statement, the Defense Ministry said: “Rapid reaction alert Typhoon fighters based at RAF Lossiemouth & Coningsby were attacked today against unidentified aircraft approaching the UK area of ​​interest.

“Subsequently, we intercepted and escorted two Russian Tu-160 Blackjack long-range strategic bombers.”

The Russian bombers did not enter UK airspace and no further details were given.

Mil Radar data said that Russian fighter jets approached Dutch airspace before being intercepted by the RAF and were seen heading north into international airspace over the North Sea at around 12:45 p.m.

Mariusz Blaszczak, Poland’s defense minister, also said that British royal engineers had started a “reconnaissance” mission with their Polish counterparts.

He said: “Our soldiers will cooperate in strengthening the border fence between Poland and Belarus.”

The exercises involving Russian paratroopers were designed to test the Allied rapid response forces due to an “increase in military activities near the Belarusian border.”

It comes as Russia exchanged quills with Western members of the UN Security Council on Thursday.

Estonia, France, Ireland, Norway, the United States, and Great Britain raised the migration crisis during a closed-door meeting of the 15-member body.

Russia’s deputy ambassador to the UN, Dmitry Polyanskiy, told reporters before the council meeting that he believed his Western colleagues “have some kind of masochist.” inclinations because raising this issue, which is a total shame for the EU, in front of us would be very brave ”.

It also comes as Dominic Cummings has taught Johnson to get involved in the “very worrying” crisis in Europe.

He said on Twitter: “All the jokes aside, the situation with the Russian troops is very, very worrying, MSM is not even remotely covered adequately, and the idea of ​​this prime minister relating to that made my blood run cold, and to many others at 70WH. ”

Andrew Adonis, a Labor member of the House of Lords, responded: “Too bad you put it there.”

Tobias Elwood, a former defense minister and chairman of the Commons Defense Committee, warned that the crisis in Europe should worry the UK.

He said: “The aggression of Russia and Belarus in Eastern Europe is not mutually exclusive and should be of great concern to the West.

“It is a test of our collective determination.

“If we are not determined in our support for Poland and Ukraine, then authoritarianism wins and we invite more destabilizing adventurism.”
