The U.S. is deploying fighter jets in Alaska because of Russia’s activity, The Business Insider reports.
According to the author of the publication, the Americans are strengthening their positions due to the growing military competition with the Russian Federation and China.
The Pentagon, he continued, is concerned about the “activity of Russia,” which has reached “the highest level since the cold war.”
After the deployment of U.S. fighter jets in the region is completed, the U.S. Air Force will also “have the largest military presence in the Arctic in recent years,” the journalist concluded.
