MOSCOW. July 23 (Interfax) – Russian and Chinese strategic bombers performed patrolling in the Asia-Pacific region on Tuesday in implementation of the Russian Defense Ministry’s international cooperation plan, Russian Aerospace Forces Long-Range Aviation Commander Lieut. Gen. Sergei Kobylash said.
“This mission was performed in line with the international military cooperation plan of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for 2019 and has not been aimed against any third countries,” Kobylash told reporters on Tuesday.
He went on to reveal that an air group composed of two Russian Tupolev Tu-95MS dual-capable long-range bombers and two China’s H-6K strategic bombers had flown a mission along a pre-planned route over neutral waters of the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea.
“The actions of strategic bombers were supported by fighter jets and the Beriev A-50 and Kongjing-2000 command and control military aircraft,” Kobylash said.
