Russian strategic aviation pilots perform flights professionally and in accordance with international standards, said head of the Northern Command of the US Armed Forces, Admiral William Gortney.

Over the recent years, the Russian Air Forces have resumed flights of strategic aviation over neutral territories, including areas in Europe and at the borders of the United States and Canada. Western countries have repeatedly expressed their concern in this regard, and accused Russia of fomenting tension. Moscow responded by pointing to the fact, that the alliance’s aviation had never stopped such flights, and the Russian side carried out patrolling in compliance with international standards.
