The time of the incident is not specified. The reason why the fighters took to the air, named already familiar: the aircraft is not transferred to the known identification code of the dispatchers and did not respond to treatment.
The defense Ministry has repeatedly stated that all flights of videoconferencing carried out in strict compliance with international rules of using airspace over neutral waters, without breaking borders of other States.
However, NATO continued to assert the “activity” of the Russian HQs in European airspace and, in particular, over the Baltic sea. Our military call such “news” throws in order to distract attention from the increasing NATO forces near Russia’s borders.
This time the UK Ministry of defence announced another “news”, apparently in order to justify their presence at the Western borders of the Russian Federation: the fact that the British planes are on Estonian air base for three weeks until this incident, never left.
“This is another example of how important the UK’s role in the NATO mission air policing of the Baltic States. We were able to react instantly to this aggression by Russia, which is a Testament to our commitment to the task of collective defense of NATO countries”, — without batting an eye, said British defense Secretary Michael Fallon.Related posts:
