LONDON, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The UK will send a surveillance drone of the Royal Air Force to Ukrainian borders, the Defense Ministry of the UK reported on Tuesday.
The drone would perform flights in the air space of Poland and Romania, the representative of the ministry specified. He added that Great Britain detached its surveillance drone to take part in the NATO mission aimed at raising the patrolling level over the Baltic States.
As reported earlier, the NATO Council took the decision on starting regular flights of AWACS radar surveillance planes to monitor the situation in the Crimea and in Ukraine at large. The planes will be departing from two air bases: from Waddington, Lincolnshire, and Geilenkirchen in western Germany near the German-Belgian border.
Earlier, Washington announced that in order to raise the defense capacity of Poland and the Baltic States the US would sent to these states up to 18 F-16 fighters and several aerial tankers.
