Unfortunately if this news spreads more widely in the internet various bozos will start the "look how russian planes and pilots suck our western planes can whoop their asses in a pinch" BS
The key here is bozos... couldn't give a fly fk what they think, and will not ignore the bad things that happen because of them.
Ignoring the bad things and focusing on the good things about themselves is what makes the US grate*.
(* grate, To irritate or annoy persistently.)
To those bozos American planes don't crash, American designed nuclear reactors in Japan didn't fail, etc etc. Don't argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
WTH one of the most mature and dedicated NATO nations to jointly develop an advanced naval weapon with the "evil empire"?
You are confusing the view of Russia from New Europe with the view of Russia from NATO.
Relations with Russia and France and Germany and Italy, and indeed Greece and quite a few other NATO countries are actually pretty good.
