American strategic bombers have once again entered Ukrainian airspace.​

American partners are consistent in their actions, supporting Ukraine, both on the diplomatic front and in the Ukrainian sky.​

On September 14, accompanied by fighters of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, three strategic bombers of the US Air Force B-52H are again in the Ukrainian airspace.​

Under the escort of Ukrainian fighters, the B-52 headed towards the Black Sea for a joint action with partner states in the field of collective security.​

Such patrols will be regular, as the B-52 missions in the skies of Ukraine are part of a long-planned deployment of six B-52s at Fairford Air Force Base of the Royal British Air Force.​

B-52 crews provide collective defence capabilities for the United States, NATO Allies and Partners, as well as strategic and operational capabilities to deter Russia.​
