USAF F-15s to Take Part in Military Drills in Bulgaria from April 10
US Air Force F-15 fighter jets will arrive in Bulgaria next month to join military exercises in the eastern European country, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
Up to 12 F-15s will arrive after Apirl 10, the newswire quoted a Bulgarian defence ministry official as saying.
The deployment, part of the Pentagon’s Operation Atlantic Resolve, will take place from April 10 to June 30.
The operation aims to demonstrate the commitment of the US military to NATO allies in view of tension along the Alliance’s flank in eastern Europe prompted by Russia’s involvement in the conflict in Ukraine.
Moscow has denied Western accusations of providing support to pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine.
