Pentagon sends B-52 bombers to Europe for exercises amid tensions with Russia

The Hill - 03-21


The U.S. has sent six nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to Europe for “theater integration and flying training” with NATO partners and local allies amid tensions with Russia. The move is widely viewed as a message to the Kremlin as Moscow makes aggressive moves in the region, CNN noted in a report on Thursday, adding that four of the nuclear-capable bombers conducted flights around Europe, near the Norwegian, Baltic and the Mediterranean seas, on Monday.
