According to North American Aerospace Defense Command, US F-22 stealth fighters in international airspace intercepted two Russia’s TU-95 "Bear" bombers near Alaska on Friday, as CNN reports.
Russian long-range combers got into the Air Defense Identification Zone which extends for around 200 miles from Alaska’s western coast.

“At approximately 10 a.m. ET, two Alaskan-based NORAD F-22 fighters intercepted and visually identified two Russian TU-95 'Bear' long-range bomber aircraft flying in the Air Defense Identification Zone around the western coast of Alaska, north of the Aleutian Islands," Andrew Hennessy, NORAD and USNORTHCOM Spokesperson, Canadian Army Maj, said.
According to Andrew Hennessy’s statement, Russia’s aircraft were "intercepted and monitored by the F-22s until the bombers left the ADIZ along the Aleutian Island chain heading west,” and did not enter the U.S. airspace.

Earlier, the U.S. jets intercepted Russia’s aircraft on May 3, 2017.
