According to Western sites that refer to radio intercept data, the Russian fighter Su-27 from the air defense forces on duty was raised into the air to identify and escort an American reconnaissance aircraft.

In addition, on Tuesday, a strategic reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force RC-135W with a tail number 62-4134 flew for several hours near the land border of the region, making it in Polish airspace.

Last week (24, 25 and 26 of January) the RC-135W also conducted operational reconnaissance near the sea and land borders of the Kaliningrad region. Since the beginning of the year, at least 12 American reconnaissance missions have flown to the borders of the Kaliningrad region, as well as two to the Leningrad and Pskov regions from Estonia and Latvia.

Recently, the number of reconnaissance flights of American military aircraft near the sea borders of Russia on the Black Sea has also been growing, Interfax reports.
