According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the aerial mission was conducted in accordance with international laws, and no country’s aerial border was violated.


The Tu-95 is a long-range strategic bomber produced by the Russian company Tupolev and also serves as a launch platform for air-to-ground missiles for strategic purposes. The Tu-95 is one of the oldest strategic bombers and has been in service with the Russian Air Force since 1956.

One of the distinctive features of the Tu-95 is its four turboprop engines with propellers and a long wingspan, giving it a unique and easily recognizable appearance. It was designed for long-duration air operations and has the capability to carry both nuclear weapons and conventional bomb loads. The Tu-95 is also equipped with self-defense systems against interceptions by enemy fighters.
