"At approximately 10 a.m. ET, two Alaskan-based NORAD F-22 fighters intercepted and visually identified two Russian TU-95 "Bear" long-range bomber aircraft flying in the Air Defence Identification Zone around the western coast of Alaska", NORAD and US Northern Command spokesman Canadian Army Major Andrew Hennessy said in a statement.
Russian bombers TU-95 and TU-142 were escorted by two F-22 fighter jets in global airspace for 40 minutes, the RIA news agency cited the Russian Defense Ministry as saying on Saturday.
The Russian Defense Ministry stated that US F-22 fighter jets had been escorting Russian long-range aircraft for 40 minutes without approaching them closer than 100 meters.
The bombers entered a US air-defense identification zone (ADIZ), defined as airspace extending approximately 200 miles from the nation's coastline, though mainly composed of worldwide airspace. In January, a Russian Russian Su-27 came within 1.5 meters of a U.S. Navy surveillance plane while it was flying in worldwide airspace over the Black Sea.
Earlier this month, a Russian fighter jet intercepted a U.S. Navy spy plane above the Baltic Sea in what the U.S. called "safe" but "unprofessional".
