The North Atlantic Alliance intends to strengthen the defense capability of Romania, protecting it from "inclinations and raids" of Russia.
As noted by the Spanish edition ABCBlogs, in 2021 Madrid, as a NATO member, begins to carry out a new international mission. An air force contingent of six Eurofighter aircraft and 130 servicemen will be transferred to Romania at the Mikhail Kogalnicanu airbase, located near the city of Constanta (the country's largest seaport). Here they will stay [apparently on a rotational basis] from February 1 to March 30.
The Spanish military have already visited their future deployment site, which has undergone modernization over the past three years.
Mission geography - Romania and the Black Sea [...] The task is known: to monitor the airspace of the allied country, which suffers, as in the case of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the Baltic Sea, from air raids by the Russian Aerospace Forces
- writes ABCBlogs.
As the military explained to the publication, it is mainly about identifying suspicious aircraft, "which do not have a flight plan or are not responsible for international identification mechanisms and which may actually violate or invade the airspace of the country in question."
What exactly these "sufferings" of Romania and other countries of the eastern flank of NATO consist of, it is not reported, how the concept of "raids" is not specified. By the same logic, Russia "suffers" from the flights of aircraft of the countries of the North Atlantic military bloc near its borders.
The other day Voennoye Obozreniye, in one of its materials, announced NATO's readiness to "strengthen Romania militarily."
