Two Russian strategic bombers flew over the East China Sea South Korea also flew fighter jets

On August 24th, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that on August 23rd, two strategic bombers, Tu-95, were on patrol in the Sea of Japan. They were escorted by Su-30SM fighter jets. The Russian spokesperson said that during the patrol, South Korean F-16 jet fighters sortied.

The South Korean Defense Department said they responded to Russian military aircraft entering South Korea’s Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ). The Republic of Korea Joint Staff Headquarters said they had taken normal tactical measures to deal with the unexpected situation.

Some analysts believe that the flight of Russian strategic bombers’ appearance over the East China Sea may attribute to the ROK-US joint military exercises. Previously, South Korea and the United States began a joint military exercise, Eunji Freedom Shield (UFS) the day before.
