Earlier in October, MiG-31 and Su-35 escorted two Rockwell B-1 Lancer bombers.

NATO aircraft have intensified reconnaissance activities near the Russian border over the past months. Moscow has warned that such regular flights by US and NATO aircraft near Russia's border poses the risk of accidental escalation.
