Sending your bombers to the borders of Russia, the United States will not reach its goal to intimidate Russia, but put its European allies, from whose airfields fly these aircraft, said RIA Novosti, first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir Jabbarov.

Earlier, the defense Ministry said that the air defense forces on Friday found the strategic bombers b-1B U.S. air force over the Black and Baltic seas, fighter VC of the Russian Federation forced them to turn aside from the Russian border.

According to him, such an attempt "acts of intimidation" is absolutely meaningless.

"We are not afraid, it is absolutely meaningless. But the risk of incidents if the pilot will be off course or something - does this show of force is very dangerous for US," said the Senator.

Jabbarov underlined that such actions cast doubt on the US desire to extend the start-3 and other treaties with Russia.

The contract on reduction of strategic offensive arms (start-3) signed on in 2010, remains the only current agreement between Russia and the USA on the limitation of armaments. The agreement expires in February 2021. Earlier, the US said that think about extending the start-3, but I suggest to expand it to a large circle of new weapons not included in the current start-3 and also propose to include in the contract of the PRC. China has said that such negotiations were not interested.
