A Russian-made fighting vehicle successfully dealt with two potential intruders at once.

According to sources, two American military aircraft, without any identification, took off from the air base in Puerto Rico, and critically approached the borders of Venezuela.

Therefore, the Su-30MK2 fighter was raised to intercept them, which not only intercepted potential violators, but also successfully forced them to retreat from the Venezuelan airspace.

It is reported that initially the crews of American military aircraft ignored the requests of a combat fighter pilot, however, “after a determination of decisiveness”, they were forced to comply with the requirements of Venezuela and leave the airspace near the borders of the Latin American state.
