According to CNN reports, us military confirmed the escort in a statement, saying two Alaska-based F-22 fighters "intercepted and visually identified the Russian bombers".

A Russian Tupolev Tu-95 turboprop-powered strategic bomber flies above the Kremlin in Moscow, on May 7, 2015, during a rehearsal for the Victory Day military parade. The officers requested anonymity as a result of they weren't approved to debate that portion of the intercept. Andrew Hennessy said in a statement.

The bombers entered a USA air-defense identification zone (ADIZ), defined as airspace extending approximately 200 miles from the nation's coastline, though mainly composed of global airspace.

The Russian Defense Ministry stated that US F-22 fighter jets had been escorting Russian long-range aircraft for 40 minutes without approaching them closer than 100 meters.

The Chilly Conflict-era Russian bombers, which date to the 1950s, have been intercepted by U.S. Air Drive F-22 stealth fighter jets round 10 a.m. EDT.


The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative news website, first reported the intercept.

Earlier this month, a Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Navy reconnaissance aircraft within the Baltic Sea.

12 May marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of NORAD, a joint US-Canadian command charged with aerospace warning and control for North America. The Russian Sukhoi Su-27 jet came within 20 feet of the American P-8 in global airspace.

NATO naval officials in late 2017 also reported Russian submarines probing underseas data cables in the North Atlantic.
