NATO fighters intercept ‘lost’ Russian plane over Baltic

Today, NATO fighters were ordered to intercept the IL-78 aircraft of the Air Forces of Russia over the Baltic Sea.

It is reported by Joinfo.ua referring to the message of the Armed Forces of Latvia on Twitter.

"NATO Baltic Air Policing QRA ITA Typhoon jets on 10 MAR scrambled to intercept Russian Armed Forces Il-78 over the Baltic Sea," the report says.

The Russian Defense Ministry have not yet commented on nor the fact of interception of aircraft or even its appearance over the Baltic Sea.

It should be recalled that last year NATO aircraft conducted about 100 interceptions of Russian fighters.

As it was previously reported the Russian aircraft entered the airspace of the United Kingdom.
