Are Russian Pilots That Bad?

...or is there something more sinister behind this?

The UK's Royal Air Force has launched fighter jets to intercept eight Russian military planes flying in airspace patrolled by Nato, UK officials say.

Four RAF F3 Tornado aircraft were scrambled in response to the Russian action, the UK's defence ministry said.

The Russian planes - long-range bombers - had earlier been followed by Norwegian F16 jets.

Not the only incident involving Russian Bombers. Maybe they're still upset over the whole Litvinenko thing.
