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.
