When two Russian strategic bombers entered South Korea’s air defence identification zone, the south korea’s military there sent out fighter fighters to deal with the situation.
After spotting two Russian aircraft entering the nation’s air defence identification zone, South Korea’s military announced today that “tactical steps” have been taken to protect against unforeseen circumstances (ADIZ).
The South Korean military, however, withheld information on the incident.
The Russian Defense Ministry reported the same day that two Tupolev-95MS strategic bombers from the nation’s air force conducted patrols over the Sea of Japan as scheduled.
The flight, which was accompanied by Su-30SM fighters, took place for almost 7 hours. The Korean Air Force sent out F-16 fighters to keep an eye on the fleet of Tu-95MS bombers at some point during the flight, the Russian Defense Ministry noted.
The Arctic, North Atlantic, Pacific, Black, and Baltic Seas are among the international waters over which Russia frequently conducts patrol missions. The Russian side believes that all air force flights must be conducted in conformity with international regulations.
