Two Russian TU-160 missile carriers were transported to the Anadyr airport in Chukotka, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The ministry pointed out that the overflights of the two aircraft lasted more than 8 hours, during which they traveled more than 6 thousand kilometers, and the flight was carried out without refueling.

The Russian Defense Ministry said: “The event was organized as part of a tactical flight maneuver planned, and carried out under the leadership of long-range aviation commander General Sergei Kobilash.

The exercise will last until the end of this week, with about 10 Tu-160, Tu-95ms and IL-78 aircraft taking part, the ministry said.

In August last year, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that two Russian TU-160s landed for the first time at Anadyr airport during similar exercises.

Anadyr is a port town and the administrative center of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia, located at the mouth of the Anadyr River at the tip of a peninsula that protrudes into Anadyrsky Liman. Anadyr is the easternmost town in Russia, which has a maritime border with the United States.

Earlier in March, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said: “For the first time since the Soviet era, anti-submarine flights were carried out across the Arctic to the North American continent.”

In November 2017, Russia’s Chief of General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, said Russia had increased the intensity of strategic aviation flights to the Soviet-era level.

It should be noted that the strategic missile carriers Tu-160 and Tu-95MS, represent the air element of the Russian nuclear triad.
