It concerned two SU-27 fighters and an Ilyushin Il-20, which did not transmit any transponder signals. They were intercepted by Eurofighters from the two NATO allies.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania do not have their own fighter jets. The NATO military alliance has been securing the Baltic airspace in Northeastern Europe since 2004. The allies regularly deploy fighter jets and personnel to the Baltic states bordering Russia.

At the beginning of April, after eight months, the German army handed over command of the NATO air surveillance mission to Great Britain. The German air force will continue to support Great Britain until the end of the month.
