NATO named the main reason for the growth in the number of sorties of its military aircraft

11

During 2021, NATO aircraft completed 370 missions. NATO has named the main reason for the increase in the number of sorties of its combat aviation.


The alliance notes that most often NATO planes had to take off to escort Russian aircraft. In 2021, this happened 290 times.

The AP agency has a number of details related to the interceptions of aircraft belonging to Russia. This usually happened when, according to NATO officials, Russian aircraft were "too close" to the borders of any member state. Most often, such incidents occurred over the Baltic Sea, near Estonian, Latvian or Lithuanian airspace.

At the same time, representatives of the alliance note, the escort of Russian aircraft most often took place without incidents, since they "almost never" crossed the borders of NATO countries. In such cases, NATO aircraft approached the Russians, identified the type of aircraft and accompanied it until it left the area adjacent to the border. At the same time, the term "almost never" is not specified.

Actually, flights of NATO aircraft are also noted near the borders of the Russian Federation. Last week alone, 39 foreign aircraft and UAVs were seen near Russian borders. This is a record for the past few months.

    It seems normal and correct, but the phrase continues.
    as they "almost never" crossed the borders of NATO countries.

    Also, it seems like nothing if not for a couple of words "almost never"

    What NATO called it the usual routine work of air defense aviation.
    The main reason is akin to "bear disease". Fear for all good deeds, mixed with bewilderment: "And us for what?"
    Scientists speculate that stressful diarrhea once served ancient humans well when confronted with dangerous animals.
    I suppose that such stressful situations can sooner or later do a good job, as in the case of the boy who shouted: “Wolves! Wolves! "

    ........madmen - sin must be paid for.
    They are not Lutherans, who have 5 "only"
    among them and "Only God", that is, not to the person himself,
    not even the priest is allowed to decide something about
    perfect sin - pray at least 25 hours a day,
    even build a church out of money.
    And in the USA, Catholics, and they have everything like ours - crossed himself
    three times, brought the money to the priest - it was a sin, and it is not there.

    Why are they there, every transport flying over the Baltic to Kaliningrad is "intercepted"?
    No, well, ours can of course fly through Lithuania, so it's shorter for us, and it's closer to you to "intercept".
    And when exactly those who need to be intercepted fly, it will obviously not be from the sea. And you won't have time to lift anyone.

    related to the interception of aircraft belonging to Russia.


    Explain to me, not a pilot from the word at all, why is this word "interception" being shoved everywhere?
    Interception is when the South Korean Boeing over the Far East was scrapped.
    And this is all that is described, isn't it called "escort"?
    From all the irons flies: "intercepted" ... "intercepted" ....
