UK jets scrambled to SEE OFF two ‘RUSSIAN NUCLEAR BOMBERS’ near Scotland

23 April, 2014 RT.

 
The UK on Wednesday scrambled several Typhoon fighter jets to see off two “unidentified aircraft flying near the north of Scotland,” a UK Defense Ministry spokeswoman told Reuters. The agency said Britain’s Royal Air Force later identified the aircraft as Russian Tupolev Tu-95 strategic bombers, commonly known by their NATO reporting name “Bear.” The planes “were flying in international airspace at all times, they didn’t go into UK sovereign airspace,” the spokeswoman said, adding that there had been eight similar incidents in 2013. Local media reports claimed that two Russian bombers turned away and flew towards Scandinavia after being contacted by the British jets.

"AMERICANS are 'running the SHOW' in Ukraine" -FM Lavrov | FULL INTERVIEW | 25 Min

Міністр закордонних справ Росії Сергій Лавров переговори
| повний текст інтерв'ю |


Moscow will be forced to respond correspondingly to any actions undermining the interests of Russian citizens, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday.

As the standoff in the eastern Ukraine deteriorates into violence it’s up to world powers to step in and calm things down. Despite tough talk from Washington, the US, EU, Russia and Ukraine have managed to reach a framework to peace in Geneva. But will it be enough to avert a civil war? Sophie asks the Russian Foreign minister himself...

“If we are attacked, we would certainly respond,” Lavrov said in an English-language interview with the RT news channel. – Sergey Lavrov is on Sophie&Co today.

“If our interests, our legitimate interests, the interests of Russians have been attacked directly, like they were in South Ossetia for example, I don’t see any other way but to respond in full accordance with international law. Russian citizens being attacked is an attack against the Russian Federation,” the foreign minister said, adding that Russia is not engaged in any military activity that does not fall under international law.

“The only thing I would like to highlight at this stage is that the Russian troops are on the Russian territory, the requests for inspections under the so-called Vienna Document 2011 and under the treaty of the Open Sky, they all have been granted,” he said.

“The inspectors visited the areas of deployment of the troops participating in the training exercises … No one who participated in the inspections, including the Americans, Ukrainians and Europeans, ever brought up any fact which would indicate that Russia was engaged in some dangerous military activity,” Lavrov said.

The Vienna document is an international treaty of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), aimed at building up trust among members.

The Open Skies Treaty, which entered into force in 2002, established a regime of unarmed aerial observation flights over the territories of its 34 member states to promote openness and transparency of military forces and activities. Russia ratified the treaty in 2001.

Commenting on Russia’s alleged military presence near the Ukrainian border, Lavrov explained that Russian troops were dispatched in response to Ukraine’s own deployment.

“We never denied that we moved additional troops on the border, just like Ukrainian authorities moved their troops closer to the Russian border because they moved them to the east and south regions,” the minister said.

He also stressed that Russia was conducting military exercises in different regions of the country on a regular basis.

“Last summer and last fall there were exercises in the East and in the Siberian part of Russia, then there was an exercise in the area of Central Russia close to Ukraine. Now I think they’re planning new training games in the Northwest of Russia. So it’s an ongoing process because the army must feel itself fit and ready in the expectation that they would never be required to do anything,” Lavrov added.

INTERVIEW:

Sophie Shevardnadze: Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s Foreign minister, it’s great to have you on our show today.

Sergey Lavrov: Thank you for the invitation.

SS: So, just the other day Joe Biden on his visit to Kiev said that time is short for Russia to make progress on its commitments made in Geneva. What is expected of Russia?

SL: Well, it’s difficult to say because I discuss this almost daily with John Kerry. And frankly the American colleagues chose to put all the blame on Russia, including the origin of the conflict and including the steps which must be taken. They accuse us of having Russian troops, Russian agents in the east and South of Ukraine. They say that it is for the Russians only to give orders and the buildings illegally occupied would be liberated and that it is for the Russians to make sure that the East and South of Ukraine stops putting forward the demands for the federalization and the referendum and so on and so forth. This is absolute…you know…switching the goal post if you wish. In Geneva we all agreed that there must be reciprocal approach to any illegitimate action in Ukraine, be it in Kiev, be it in the West, be it in the East, be it in the South. And the people who started the process of illegitimate actions must step back first. It is absolutely abnormal due to any norms in a European city that Maidan is still occupied, that the buildings in Kiev are still occupied and in some other cities, that those who put on fire the buildings belonging to Communist party headquarters in Kiev, the buildings belonging to the Trade Union headquarters are not even under investigation. I don’t even want to mention the sniper cases because everyone forgot about those snipers. And we only hear that “Let’s concentrate on eliminating terrorist threats in the East and in the South”.
