US B-52 Intercepted by Russian Jet over Baltic Sea

A US B-52 Stratofortress bomber was flying a routine mission in international air space over the Baltic Sea when it was intercepted by a Russian Su-27 fighter jet. Over past several months, since Donald Trump became President, Russian fighters have been intercepting more and more American military planes in international and US air space.

A U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber flying a “routine mission” in international airspace over the Baltic Sea was intercepted by a Russian jet on Tuesday, a Pentagon spokesman said.

The U.S. bomber was still up in the air Tuesday afternoon and the crew had not been debriefed about the incident, meaning it was not yet known exactly how close the Russian Su-27 fighter jet came to the U.S. plane, Capt. Jeff Davis said. The bomber was deployed to the U.K. from Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana earlier this month, U.S. European Command told Fox News.

The “vast majority” of Russian intercepts with U.S. forces are safe and professional, Davis said…

As Democrats continue to circle Trump’s presidency, just waiting for proof that the Trump administration was in collusion with Russia to hack and influence last year’s election, they need to ask why Russia has been suddenly involved in acts of aggression against the United States? If Trump and Putin were buddy-buddy, then none of these fly-bys or intercepts should be taking place. To anyone with a brain, these actions speak volumes to Trump’s innocence.
