Military experts announced a possible disruption of NATO exercises in the Mediterranean Sea due to the fact that several Russian Tu-22M3 supersonic bombers unexpectedly arrived in Syria.

It is known that the bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried anti-ship cruise missiles on board, which sowed panic among the NATO ship crew.

 Experts note that if the Russian side uses anti-ship missiles against NATO ships, this will lead to the complete destruction of the fleet, especially since the appearance of Alliance ships in the Mediterranean Sea is provocative.
