NATO led by the United States ignores Russian proposals to clarify an agreement on the prevention of dangerous military activities in the air and at sea. This was announced by the Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces, General of the Army Valery Gerasimov.
According to Gerasimov, Moscow is not satisfied with the current situation around the Russian borders, especially in terms of flights of strategic aviation of the alliance. Existing agreements do not cover all the nuances of preventing dangerous military activities, and NATO, led by the United States, does not want to clarify them.
Of course, we react to these things. Little of, we train all our duty shifts, combat crews and air defense, and aviation, and control points for flights of such aircraft
– said General, adding, that Russia has repeatedly offered the United States and NATO “consider issues and clarify existing agreements on the prevention of dangerous military activities in the air and at sea”.
These appeals of ours remained unanswered. (…) the leadership of NATO and the Armed Forces of the United States of America, this situation seems to suit. She does not suit us
– explained Gerasimov.
he stressed, that some of the details are not spelled out in the agreements: intervals for convergence, distance for the convergence of aircraft and ships, procedure and so on. All this can lead to incidents and conflict situations in the future..
For our part, we note, that pilots of American reconnaissance aircraft and strategic bombers repeatedly complained about the dangerous approach and maneuvers of Russian fighters during “interceptions” at the Russian border.
