Russia to renew regular long-range flights of strategic bombers

President Vladimir Putin had ordered to resume regular long-range flights of strategic bombers.

"I have made a decision to resume regular flights of Russian strategic aviation," Putin was quoted as saying by Russian agencies. He said a halt in long-range bombers' flights after the Soviet collapse had affected Russia's security as other nations had continued such missions - a oblique reference to the United States.
