Russia Sends Warplanes to Belarus Amid Fight With EU Over Migrants

MOSCOW—Russia deployed strategic bombers to Belarus’s airspace on Wednesday, amid escalating tensions between Belarus and Poland over a surge of migrants at their shared border and the positioning of several thousand Polish troops on the European Union’s eastern flank.

Russia’s Defense Ministry reported that two long-range Tu-22M3 bombers carried out patrols in the area and an inspection of the air-defense system of the Union State, an alliance that binds Russia and Belarus together in various areas ranging from the economy to defense.
