US Deploys Its B-52 Nuclear Bombers At Russia’s Doorsteps As Tensions Soar Between Moscow & Washington
The United States Air Force is reportedly sending its strategic bombers to Europe, close to Russia, when there is an uptick in military operations against Russian-occupied Ukrainian territory.
The United States intends to deploy its B-52 strategic bombers close to the Russian borders. According to local Russian media reports and speculations on social media, four American strategic bombers are expected to arrive in Europe in the coming days.
There are reports the B-52s have already arrived.
The B-52 bombers will first need to be stationed at a military air base in the United Kingdom. According to Gloucestershire Live, the American long-range bombers deployed in the UK earlier this year will return to Fairford Air Force Base next week.
These reports come a day after Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the United States and Britain were planning the Ukrainian military operations and that NATO had increased its troop deployment in Eastern and Central Europe “several times over.”
American B-52 strategic bombers could be deployed to Europe from the Minot Air Force Base in the United States. Minot Air Base in North Dakota is where the 5th Bomb Wing operates 26 B-52s from.
EurAsian Times could not independently verify these claims.
However, there seems to be a concerted effort on the part of the United States, which is actively using its Bombers to create deterrence with its adversaries.
For instance, it sent its B-1 Lancers and B-2 Spirit Bombers to Australia to conduct Bomber Task Force exercises. The American bombers have been in Australia for more than a month, as reported by EurAsian Times.
In March, the bombers flew across Central Europe and nations bordering the Black Sea to practice close-air-support operations with ground troops. They also traveled to the Arctic to participate in the NORAD-led Noble Defender exercise over Canada and Norway’s NATO-led Cold Response.
The Bomber flights are regular over Europe and the Pacific. The Barents Sea to the north of Russia, the Sea of Okhotsk off the coast of Russia’s Far East, and the Black Sea close to Crimea are among the critical areas that US bombers have been flying over more frequently in recent times.
