Former Polish President Lech Walesa told how he behaved in the place of captain of the American destroyer “Donald cook”, near which flew the Russian aircraft su-24.
“If I was the commander of this ship, and they [the Russians] were flying, and I would hit them. Would not kill. Would shoot at the wings,” said Walesa in an interview with radio “Freedom”. Answering a journalist, that such actions will lead to conflict, Walesa said: “there is No conflict. What is the conflict? Nobody wants it, and the Russians don’t want it”.
According to him, Russia wants to win “intimidation and blackmail”. “Russia cannot afford a conflict, it is terribly expensive,” — said the politician.
In April, the U.S. accused Russia that the Russian su-24 bombers several times flew in the immediate vicinity of the US Navy destroyer “Donald cook” in the Baltic sea.
Previously with the proposal to knock down performing dangerous maneuvers Russian planes were predlagal the candidate in presidents of the United States Donald trump.
