Russian Planes Fly Near California And Guam In Possible Show Of Force

•, David Brunnstrom
General Herbert "Hawk" Carlisle said the number of long-range Russian patrols around the Japanese islands and Korea had also increased "drastically" and there had been "a lot more ship activity as well".

"We relate a lot of that to what's going on in the Ukraine," Carlisle said at Washington's Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.

Carlisle showed a slide of a U.S. F-15 fighter jet intercepting a Russian "Bear" aircraft, the Cold War NATO name for Russia's Tupolev Tu-95 strategic bomber, over Guam.

"Certainly what's going on in Ukraine and Crimea is a challenge for us and it's a challenge for us in Asia Pacific as well as Europe," Carlisle said.
