Russia Flies Nuclear Bombers Over Alaska for Fourth Straight Day

Russian continues to fly their Tu-95 "Bear" long-range nuclear bombers within the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone -- now spanning a four day stretch, according to Fox News

The same Russian bombers intentionally flew off the coast of the United States on Monday, which triggered two F-22 fighter jets and an E-3 airborne early warning plane to intercept the aircraft.  And last week, Russia performed the same stunt off the coast of Japan to "send a message.”

Last week, President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson both said that relations with Russia were at an all-time low.
