NATO said Wednesday that it had intercepted a large number of Russian military aircraft flying close to European airspace in the past two days, in an “unusual” series of incidents that brought Russian bombers as far afield as Portugal.

Over the Atlantic Ocean and the North, Black and Baltic seas, Russian bombers, fighter jets and tanker aircraft were detected flying in international airspace, NATO said. There were no incursions into national airspace, a violation of sovereignty that would have significantly amplified the seriousness of the four incidents, three of which took place on Wednesday.

Also near the U.S., Russia is sending its aircraft to test the waters and gauge the preparedness of other nations.
In the latest incident, two American F-22 fighter jets were scrambled after six Russian military planes approached the US coastline. The US fighters intercepted the aircraft about 55 miles from the Alaskan coast as revealed by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)
