Aerial kills among the Allies

Probably a little-known fact from the history of our post-war air force is the fact that between 1945 and 1989 our pilots claimed not only several victories of various types of aircraft during service at the State Air Defense, but also in several cases became a real target of live fire of foreign aircraft.
All these events are all the more spicy because an Allied aircraft from the Warsaw Pact had always hit our aircraft and not an "imperialist" adversary on the other side of the Iron Curtain, as might be expected. In the following text, we will be convinced that this was mostly due to either a mistake by the ground-controlled interception station, a pilot error, or the interplay of both of these factors and other related circumstances together.
