Three Russian planes intercepted over the Baltic Sea

Apr 26, 2023

Three Russian military aircraft flying without transponder signals were intercepted in international airspace over the Baltic Sea.

This was reported by the German Air Force on Wednesday.

According to the German Air Force's Twitter account, Germany and the United Kingdom sent Eurofighter jets to identify two Su-27 fighters and one Il-20 aircraft. The Air Force published several photos of the Russian aircraft in flight.


Earlier this month, Germany handed over responsibility for NATO's Baltic Air Policing mission to the United Kingdom.

NATO allies are involved in air defense because Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia do not have their own fighter jets.
