Putin: Russia will oppose any attempts to break global strategic balance, incl. NATO missile system

Russia will oppose attempts to disrupt the strategic balance around the world such as NATO’s global anti-ballistic missile defense system, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.  “Our goal is to effectively neutralize any military threats to Russia’s security, including those of the [NATO] strategic anti-ballistic missile defense system, the prompt global strike concept and information warfare,” Putin told the Russian military.  “We will continue to do everything needed to preserve the strategic balance of power,” he said, adding that the balance was what had prevented a major military conflict between the opposing camps during the Cold War.

Plane with Russian journalists on way to Peru tracked by Swiss fighter jets

 A plane carrying members of the Russian press to the APEC summit in Peru was intercepted and tracked by Swiss fighter jets as soon as it entered the country’s airspace, journalists on board said.

The video from aboard the Russian plane was posted online by one of the passengers, with Swiss military insignias clearly visible on the escorting plane in the footage.

“We’re flying above Switzerland. At some point, the plane with the delegation and the journalists is being blocked from three sides by three fighter jets,” Andrey Kolesnikov, editor-in-chief of Russian Pioneer magazine, wrote on Facebook.

Kolesnikov said that the jets were from the Swiss Air Force, as “the flags at the tails and missiles underneath the wings were clearly visible.”

Moscow demands explanation for Russian media plane being shadowed by Swiss fighter jets

 Russia has asked the Swiss government to explain why the country deployed fighter jets to shadow a Russian plane carrying journalists to a summit in Peru.

“We have sent a note asking for clarifications and expressing our puzzlement over the incident. We asked that such incidents be prevented in the future,” the Russian embassy in Bern said on its Twitter page.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said Russia was concerned about how close Switzerland’s military aircraft had come to Russia’s civilian plane.
