Newsweek U.S. Quotes the Warsaw Institute Article
Jason Lemon from Newsweek U.S. in his text “U.S. Creates Additional Tensions by Flying Nuclear-Capable Bombers Near Russia, Kremlin Says” refers to one of the last articles from our Russia Monitor program: “U.S. Stratofortress Jets Perform a Simulated Attack on Russia’s Baltic Fleet”
Jason Lemon in his article for Newsweek U.S. writes about the tension growing between the United States and Russia, which is to be caused by the B-52 strategic bombers sent by the Americans to the Russian border. In his text, Lemon cites one of our latest articles in the Russia Monitor program on this matter:
Several B-52 strategic bombers were sent from the U.S. to the United Kingdom this month, according to a report by Poland’s Warsaw Institute think tank. A couple of the aircraft have been sent on maneuvers over the Baltic Sea, with one reportedly coming within just 160 miles of Russian territory last week. That plane even conducted a mock strike on a Russian naval base, according to the think tank’s report.
“The bombers are supposed to operate in Europe and the North Atlantic due to an increased presence of Russian naval vessels and aircraft; they will take part in military drills held jointly with the local U.S. forces and NATO allies,” the institute explained.
