US F-15, Bulgarian MiG-29 to conduct joint patrols over Black Sea in Sept
The F-15 US fighter jets and Bulgarian MiG-29 will conduct joint patrols over the waters of the Black Sea as part of NATO's efforts to curb Russian aggression in the region next month, Voice of America agency reported.
After the Alliance has stepped up patrols of the airspace at its eastern flank in the Baltic States, some NATO members were in favour of carrying out similar operations in the Black Sea region.
NATO said that two of the F-15 will fly together with the Bulgarian MiG-29. Patrols will start on September 9 and will end on September 16.
