On Monday, two US B-52H Stratofortress military jets flew over Hungarian airspace.
As the Hungarian news portal 24.hu reported, the planes departed from the base in Fairford, England, and arrived in the region via Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The two suicide bombers crossed the border at Balassagyarmat at noon.
Last week, a similar aircraft was spotted near the Ukrainian border. He flew over Hungary in the northeast of the country and then turned off his beacon in Romania.
According to Wikipedia, the B-52 Stratofortress is one of the best-known heavy bombers in the world. The name Stratofortress refers to the conquest of the stratosphere, while the fortress refers to the first American heavy bombers B-17 Flying Fortress and B-29 Superfortress. The aircraft entered service in 1955 and was originally intended to remain in service until 2000, but due to budget constraints it was decided to upgrade it so that it could now serve the military until 2045 .
As the Hungarian news portal Blikk reports, Hungary fulfills its obligations as a member of NATO,
but no weapons can be shipped directly from its territory to Ukraine.
According to the latest government decree, Hungary allows the transit of various equipment, including defense equipment, fuel, first aid supplies, and humanitarian supplies, but does not authorize the direct transfer of arms to Ukraine.
Earlier this week, nearly 4,000 people, including 1,194 children, arrived in Budapest by train to escape the war in Ukraine. Most of them asked for information, traveled individually or visited relatives. 119 people, including 62 children, were transported and accommodated by the cooperating authorities in the capital and in rural areas – reported by Police.hu.
