U.S. Flies Bombers over NATO States in Show of Support

Russia continues its aggression in Ukraine. 

A pair of United States Air Force B52 strategic bombers flew over Croatia and three other NATO-member states in the region as a sign of support amid the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

In addition to the walled Croatian tourist resort of Dubrovnik, the aircraft flew over the government headquarters in Skopje, North Macedonia, the downtown Skanderbeg Square in the Albanian capital, Tirana, and up the Adriatic coast of Montenegro. 

The Balkans and the Adriatic Sea have lately seen increased military, intelligence, and propaganda activity by Moscow, which considers the region of its strategic interest because of its access to the Mediterranean. 

“The purpose of each flyover is to demonstrate U.S. commitment and assurance to NATO allies and partners located in southeastern Europe,” the U.S. Air Force stated. “Additionally, this will provide citizens an opportunity to take photos, videos, and enjoy the aircraft flying overhead.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Austin as he oversees military support for NATO states.
  • For wisdom for the president as commander in chief.
  • For the Join Chiefs of Staff as they evaluate military operations and the actions of hostile nations.
