  • The United States and Russia regularly intercept each other's planes over different territories. A year ago, August 8, 2019, American and Canadian fighters intercepted two Russian Tu-95 Bear H missile bombers over the Beaufort Sea north of the coast of Alaska and Canada. March 9, 2020 situation repeated.
  • April 15 Russian Su-35, having carried out a "dangerous" rendezvous, intercepted American P-8A Poseidon patrol aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea. The US military has accused the crew of the Russian fighter plane of endangering the life of the crew of a US Navy reconnaissance aircraft in a dangerous upside-down maneuver. After just 4 days happened a similar incident, and on May 27 - only one.
  • On June 10, during a flight over neutral waters near Alaska, American fighters intercepted two groups of Russian nuclear bombers. Just 6 days later, American military aircraft intercepted again two formations of Russian bombers that entered the air defense identification zone off the coast of Alaska.
