All US-bound planes from Russia are under suspicion

US authorities toughen security on US-bound passenger flightd from Russia

The US department of transportation issued a special set of instructions to enable a more thorough baggage and passenger screening upon their arrival to the United States.

Major emphases will be made on cynologists with specially trained dogs. Passenger flights of “Aeroflot” and “Delta” airlines will be screened the most. In addition, American authorities have asked Russia to strengthen security in Moscow International Airport “Sheremetyevo”.

Such toughening of security measures has to do with the recent terrorist acts aboard two planes Tu-134 and Tu-154 on the Russian territory.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
