Russian Strategic Bombers Deployed near Alaska

The Russian military has confirmed that two nuclear-capable strategic bombers have deployed near Alaska.

The two Tu-160 bombers flew about 7,000 kilometers (4,350 Miles) from their home base near Saratov in southwestern Russia to Anadyr, on Chukotka, before returning. The ministry said that the air force drill also involved Tu-95 strategic bombers and fuel tankers.

Russia has upped their regularity and intensity of military drills amid rising tensions.
