One of the Russian planes flew near the USS Mount Whitney, the flagship of the United States Sixth Fleet, which was coordinating the Trident Juncture military drills.

Two Russian Tu-142 (NATO codename Bear-F) planes conducted a planned flight over neutral waters in the Norwegian Sea, the Russian Defense Ministry stated on Saturday.

“On November 2, 2018, two anti-submarine aircraft Tu-142 of the Russian Navy’s aviation performed a planned flight over the neutral waters of the Norwegian Sea. The flight’s duration was more than 12 hours… All flights of the naval aircraft of the Russian Navy are carried out in strict accordance with the international rules for the use of airspace without violating the borders of other countries,” the statement of the ministry read, adding that the planes then landed at the airfield in the Russian northern central Vologda Region.

The flight was conducted during the NATO Trident Juncture 18 exercises in the area.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
