International military alliance created to defend western Europe against a possible Soviet invasion.
 fighters are breaking safety rules when they escort Russian bombers, it was claimed yesterday.

Russian air force chief Alexander Zelin said NATO aircraft approach Russian bombers too closely and too often over neutral waters.

Most of the contacts come over the Arctic Ocean Arctic Ocean, the smallest ocean, c.5,400,000 sq mi (13,986,000 sq km), located entirely within the Arctic Circle and occupying the region around the North Pole.  and Zelin added they "violate flight safety rules in every way" and risk collisions.

He also claimed it amounted to an "attack" as the NATO planes were training for combat.
