At the end of September, the Russian Defense Ministry announced an increase in NATO activity near the borders of Russia. So, in September, American bombers for the first time simulated cruise missile strikes on Russia over the Black Sea, and the number of reconnaissance flights of the alliance aviation off the coast of Crimea increased by 61% compared to last year. In addition, the presence of the bloc’s warships in the region has increased by a third.
At the same time, Izvestia’s sources noted that the actions, in particular, of the United States have recently been openly demonstrative, but do not look like a big threat from a military point of view.
