Lithuanian Ministry of Defense: Last week, NATO fighters 5 once took off to escort aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces

“April 26 fighters stationed in Siauliai were lifted into the air to identify the Russian aircraft heading from the Kaliningrad region. The Su-27 fighter did not provide a flight plan, did not maintain contact with the flight control center (and moved) with the radar turned off, ”the release says.

The next day, NATO fighter aircraft "identified the IL-38 aircraft bound for the Kaliningrad Region: the aircraft provided a flight plan and maintained contact with the flight control center."

April 28 Allied fighters flew twice. According to the department, “the IL-18 transport aircraft was identified, which flew without providing a flight plan and without supporting communication with the control center, and the second IL-38 aircraft, which maintained communication with the flight control center, but moved with the answering machine turned off and without flight plan.

29 on April was accompanied by an Il-20 aircraft, "flying from Kaliningrad, which fulfilled all flight requirements, but flew with the answering machine turned off."

Earlier, a representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Igor Konashenkov, stated that “all flights of Russian aircraft are carried out in accordance with the international rules for the use of airspace”.

          The statement of the Ministry of Defense of Lietuva resembled a children's cartoon, where the character learned to count and walked around and counted everyone and everything. So this Vilnius department also considers how many and how many Lietuva have flown and swam past. It is surprising for them that some objects move from one Russian region to other Russian regions located right there. And the fact that warships and planes from the overseas power of the United States are constantly "jostling" here is normal for them.

      Enough for Ukraine. On Censor, a storm of indignation stands on this subject.

      One is not clear, the Americans after each of our interception yell that they are ready to bring down our plane. It is necessary for ours, after the next interception, to say that their interceptor can bring down. It will be interesting to see their reaction.

    IL-18 transport aircraft was identified

    Really on "grandfather" obscurantists? These veterans are like a couple of flying pieces left. And it has never been a transport one, except perhaps as a relay for government communications.
    Most likely, the "stupid" ones got lost in identification.

    They forgot to list a bunch of everything. Have you seen the border guards how many times, and how suspiciously did the outfit look? How many Navy ships in neutral waters found how provocative the ships moved in neutral waters, roughly violating sovereignty?

    I’m constantly reading the Lithuanian branch, people are already tired of all this, only the authorities will not calm down. They work out the green ones, such is their share! By the way, in Lithuania there is a wave of protests at such prices, on May 10-12, people agreed not to go to supermarkets. I don’t know what will come of them there.

    Something I did not quite understand the news. Lithuanian Ministry of Defense that complains that something took off a little or that took off a lot? And in general, they would be more careful there, and then prematurely, the engine life on NATO aircraft will be developed with these flights and they will not be given more aircraft. Conclusion: Sit at the airfields. Anyway, because we will fly when necessary and where necessary and how much.

    I don’t understand why they make an event out of every such accompaniment. In Soviet times, this was the norm. Strategic bombers, such as the B-52 or Tu-95, were constantly hanging in the air on alert duty. Otherwise, what's the point? Such aircraft are not capable of breaking through the defense and the only chance to strike a nuclear weapon from such an aircraft is to launch missiles from a machine already in the air. Accordingly, than trying to intercept missiles one at a time, it is much easier to destroy a bomber at the time of launch. Therefore, fighters were constantly accompanied by bombers of another country, replacing each other on duty. Let's say somewhere above the Bering Strait. And no one made a tragedy out of it.

    The Su-27 fighter did not provide a flight plan, did not maintain communication with the flight control center (and moved) with the radar turned off, "
    This is generally from a series of crazy nonsense. Firstly, how can an airplane present a flight plan? With which control center should it support? With NATO, so with what fright? Does it have its own flight director ... And why is he obliged to fly with the radar on? Maybe he fulfilled the task of intercepting only with the help of KOLS, or purely by aiming at the target from the ground. They went by a burned forest, and as they say, VEGETABLE to help them. Let them first learn how to behave as expected near our borders, and not specify we MYSELF to conduct at MYSELF at home.
