“If such flights really begin, we will intensify the surveillance of the airspace of the Baltic countries from our territory. To this end, we will fly fighters that are based in the Western Military District,” the source said.
At the same time, the Russian General Air Force Staff representative does not believe that NATO aviation flights over the Baltic counties pose a military threat to Russia. “There is no threat of any kind here. Yes, they fly, but we also fly when we need to, and don’t ask anybody’s permission,” he said.
The NATO air police mission over the Baltic states currently engages the MiG-29 fighters of the Air Force of Poland, Typhoon fighters of Britain’s Royal Air Force, F-16 fighters of Denmark, Rafale of the French Air Force. It was reported that the Netherlands would participate in this mission with its F-16 fighters.
