However, NATO decided to hold back. “Italy, Denmark and Sweden have taken their fighters into the air and tried to detain Russian bombers,” the report said.

However, pilots of other Russian Air Force aircraft accompanying the bombers drove off NATO aircraft and prevented them from approaching.
Chinese experts add that Russian Tu-160 bombers, even unaccompanied, are a big problem for the West. They are equipped with powerful engines and the aircraft can reach high speeds, so the F-35 fighters remain.
There were no further incidents during the flight and Russian aviation returned to base.
