On July 10-16 fighter aircraft deployed to conduct the NATO Air Policing Mission in the Baltic states carried out one A-scramble to intercept military aircraft of the Russian Federation in international airspace over the Baltic Sea.

 

On July 11 NATO fighter jets were scrambled once to identify and escort one Tu-134 and one Su-27 military aircraft of the Russian Federation flying from Kaliningrad to mainland Russia in international airspace over the Baltic Sea. The Tu-134 had its onboard transponder on, a pre-filed flight plan, and kept radio contact with regional air traffic control centre. The Su-27 complied with none of those requirements.
