Two areas of direct conflict between Russia and US

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –┬áSenator Alexei Pushkov, Member of the Council of the Russian Federation (Upper House of Parliament), believes that Russia and the United States may enter a direct military confrontation in two areas that he describes as “hot spots” of the planet.

“There are two areas where a direct military conflict could break out between the United States and Russia: Syria and the Baltic region, because of the military actions of the Americans,” wrote Alexei Pushkov on Twitter.

The Russian senator is referring to the location of American reconnaissance aircraft near Russian borders in the Baltic Sea.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, a US Army reconnaissance aircraft recently flew over the land and sea borders of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad in the Baltic area.
