      In this case, most likely because of the scandal with the Violin that had been killed, the British themselves carried out reconnaissance and, in any case, they asked NATO.

      Was it necessary to intercept in the airspace of Poland? or immediately on takeoff, in Germany? Interception only in neutral territories is possible, and in ours landing is also possible ...

        He was above the neutral waters in the south of the Gulf of Finland, as soon as the tip of the wing flew into the neutral, the SU-27 was immediately under his wing!

    American drone over Estonia
    March 16th, 10: 43
    Recently, Estonia has been trending with aviation spies.

    Either the American RC-135 flew there, then the NATO AWACS, now now, the drone was sent. Probably, something interesting appeared in the St. Petersburg direction.

    here at 41 flights of German reconnaissance aircraft also became more frequent ...
    just there was a concentration of land units along the western borders ... how is it with them now?
    like building a logistics infrastructure only ... i.e. transfer by 2020 (by the way, according to the old method, the term of the presidency of the GDP was to end in 2020) ...
