They added: “All parachute equipment and systems were operational, the landing of the BMD-2 weighing 8 tons and the P-7 platform weighing more than 5 tons took place normally.”

The Russian Defense Ministry said it “performed a scheduled flight in the airspace over the neutral waters of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk and the Sea of ​​Japan.

“The crews of the Su-35S aircraft of the Air Defense and Air Defense Forces of the Eastern Military District assisted the fighter during the flight,” a statement added.

“The crews of long-range aircraft regularly conduct flights over the neutral waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic, Black and Baltic Seas and the Pacific Ocean,” the ministry said.

All flights were “strictly in accordance with international rules for the use of airspace”, the statement said.

It comes amid rising tensions between the West and Moscow over a potential invasion of Ukraine – with growing fears that war might break out.

This month US intelligence discovered that Russia had gathered up to 175,000 troops on the border with Ukraine as fears of a potential invasion in early 2022 are growing.

WAR WILL

As the US watched closely, Russia warned Joe Biden is pushing the country to the brink of nuclear war.

Sergei Ryabkov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister, warned that a chilling aftereffect of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis was possible.

“You know, it can really happen like that,” he said last week.

“If things continue as they are, it’s entirely possible by the logic of events to suddenly wake up and see yourself in something similar.”

Meanwhile, General Putin warns Russia’s nuclear and hypersonic missile launchers are “ready for action” – raised fears of an invasion of Ukraine.

Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov said that more than 95% of Moscow’s strategic nuclear forces on the ground are “continuously maintained in a state of combat readiness”.

But it is reported Britain and its allies are ready to use force to prevent Russia from invading Ukraine — despite warnings that it would lead to the worst conflict since World War Two.

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said the crisis was an important test of the West’s resolve to contain Vladimir Putin.
