The American B-1B Lancer missile carriers deployed at the Norwegian military air base simulated a strike on the Kaliningrad region.

According to, citing sources, American pilots took advantage of the surprise effect. Taking off from Erland airbase in supersonic mode, they swiftly approached the borders of the Russian region, turning sharply on approach. Experts note that this is an imitation of a strategic strike using nuclear weapons.

In the telegram channel 'Zapiski okhotnika" ("Hunter's Notes"), which monitors the airspace, they also wrote about the flight of the US reconnaissance aircraft near the northern Russian borders, which could become an attempt by NATO to distract the Russian military from the flight of strategic bombers.

"Today, two US Air Force B-1B bombers deployed in Norway completed a patrol mission in areas including the international airspace of the North and Baltic Seas. The flight included joint flights with Danish F-16s, Polish F-16s and Baltic Air Policing Eurofighter Typhoons. from Germany and Italy. Also today, a US Air Force reconnaissance officer RC-135U (board 63-9792) from the Mildenhall airbase worked in the Barents Sea with the support of the tanker KS-135 (board 61-0315)", - the channel cites the publication.

It is clarified that the Russian fighters did not take to the sky.

At this point, there have been no official comments from the RF Ministry of Defense.

It's worth reminding that four B-1B Lancers were sent to Norway at the end of January. Even then, experts predicted provocations from the United States using these aircraft. Also, experts believe that the appearance of US bombers in the Arctic may have an adverse effect on the further development of the situation in the region.
