NATO Forces Russian Bomber Fleet into Atlantic to Hit ISIS



Russia’s long-range Tu-22M3 bombers carried out 60 sorties and destroyed 42 terrorist targets in Syria, the Air Force group commander told Vladimir Putin during a briefing.

Taking off from the Mozdok airbase in North Ossetia, the bombers carried out strikes on terrorist positions in the Deir ez-Zor province in Syria.

“The targets are over 2,000 km away from the base, and each mission sortie takes at least 5 hours”, said base commander Vladimir Alesenko.

He added that the crews make two sorties every 24 hours, with one mission flight taking place at night.

In addition, two Tu-160 strategic missile carriers took off from the Olenya air force base in the Kola peninsula and after covering over 9 500 km and refueling mid-air, deployed missiles targeting terrrorist positions in Syria over the Mediterranean Sea.

“The carriers flew over the Barents and the Norwegian Seas and the Gibraltar Straight before launching strikes and returning to base”, said the Olenya base commander Trofim Kapsha.

Overall, the Tu-160 carriers spent over 16 hours in the air.

  1. Horse manure, they’re flying from North Ossetia (which probably borders to South Ossetia = Georgia’s northern border) and thus they fly via the Caspian See into Iran and then to Iraq, entering Syria from the east.

    Non the less, it’s a disgrase that sultan Erdogan of Turkey don’t allow Moscow to use the international FIR through the Bosporus, especially considering how the Turkish AF constantly antagonizes the Greeks by claiming its right to fly in towards Athens through Athens FIR…

  2. I realized years ago that NATO was nothing more than a wart on the ass of mankind. I suspect, but have no proof, that a large part of NATO funding comes from the Narco drug smuggling. NATO commanders have to know that the air base at Incirlik, Turkey is just a hub for distribution of Afghan heroin and they do nothing to stop it.

  3. Right now “i” meetings between Ge-Chi-Fra-Ru (& others). Brothers of planet Earth, the world is at the door of an impressive change, will be astonishing. Save all your data, & lets pray together.

  4. To Hell with NATO then really…It’s seemed obvious to me for quite some time that NATO was designed to keep the US IN Europe…not to keep the Soviets out…

    • It certainly wasn’t designed to kick the Soviets out. Especially when it probably could have by aiding several potential insurgencies at once ( Poland, Hungary, the Baltics, Croatia?, E. Germany )…NATO was designed to make the European countries anti-nationalist, globalist-oriented basket cases lacking in enough pride to defend their people from this eventual, inevitable onslaught of ME/African invaders ( pushed along by a contrived crisis created by Talmudicists who hate everyone else..)

  5. If my neighbor is pursuing a just cause in pursuit of a highly publicized criminal guilty of murder and rape, and I do not let him pass through my lawn in their pursuit, then the criminal is my friend. The only other explanation is that I am an ignorant ornery bastard.

  6. NATO is like a Fifth Reich or like a Sorrow Abbey. But, they are losing Syrian territories (and oil and gas en route) for good.

  7. Mr. GPD ____ Translation =

     NATO is so JEALOUS of President Putin, it could die
     NATO will do anything, to make the “Russian’s ISIS Mission Unsuccessful.

  8. The French President asked President Putin Not NATO for Help with ISIL. Why?
     The French leader said, “It’s An Act Of War,” which means, he could invoke Article 5 of the NATO Treaty, which stipulates that an attack on one, should be treated as an attack on all NATO members, but ISIL is Not a Country.
     Hollande saw, for the 1st time in the 21st century, Russia sent its Strategic Bombers into combat zone, so he knew Mr. Putin Meant Business.
     After ISIL brought down Airbus A321, claiming the lives of 224 Russians, although Mr. Putin looked reserved & collected, he must have promised himself to Avenge for his People.
     The Russian Military abhors “Mission Creep” & want no part in “Nation Building.” As the aims have to be in line with intelligence assessment of what the military could accomplish, they try to limit the use of the military by picking which Armed Forces to be used to achieve the objectives of the Mission.
     As the French fighter jets currently conducted more air strikes against ISIL targets, with the French & USA intelligence, the two Leaders will meet in Moscow.
     The French president wants to take a different approach to tackling ISIL & the Russian leader Vladimir Putin agreed to Create a Joint Working Group,
     to coordinate anti-ISIL efforts in the region, with French, USA, Russia & others, when the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier reaches its destination. UK & Belgium already sent warships to provide air defense for the French aircraft carrier.

  9. The red line is a bit misleading. The Tu-160s are based 50 miles south of Murmansk, in the NW of Russia near the Norwegian border. Not were the line starts.
    But the line should have continued dotted as the return flight when they overflew Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Caspian and finally Russia on the way home. The route home was the route they had previously in the opposite direction to bomb Syria on other trips.
    Clearly they used this as an opportunity to make the point that it is not only the US that can perform very long range strategic bombing missions. Pretty successfully I’d say.

  10. Excellent footage, thanks! I just watched Insane McCain lying up a storm on CNN-it’s quite infuriating. And the day that piece of living human excrement passes away, he’ll have an”honorable” ceremony before he starts rotting
