The Russian defence ministry reported that it has intercepted two US Air Force bombers over the Bering Sea on Wednesday.

According to the release, two USAF B-1 Lancers were intercepted over the area by a MiG-31 Foxhound and a Su-35 Flanker of the Russian Aerospace Forces. The Russian pilots successfully intercepted and escorted the bombers, preventing any territorial violations.

“On 21 October Russian airspace control means over neutral waters of Bering Sea detected two air targets approaching to the state border of Russia”, the defence ministry report said.

The NATO has increased its reconnaissance flights over the region manifold, which is nevertheless mirrored by the Russians, often escalating the tensions. Earlier, the US Air Force already raised F-22 fighters to escort Russian Tu-95MS strategic missile carriers over the neutral waters of the Chukchi, Beaufort, Bering and Sea of Okhotsk, Sputnik said.

Earlier, in September, the US Air Force flew B-1 Lancers, which, at that time too, were intercepted over the waters of Bering and Okhotsk seas.

Two MiG-31 Foxhounds and later an additional Su-35S were scrambled by the Eastern Military District for interdiction, which escorted the bomber, preventing any border violations. Its video was released by the Russian ministry:

Similar interception was made in April too when a B-1 Lancer flew from Alaska and flew over the Bering Sea.
