Endless war, even in the skies. British and German fighter jets intercepted Russian planes flying close to Estonian airspace for the second time in a week. The announcement was made by the British Royal Air Force (RAF). The two Typhoon jets intercepted “a Russian Tu-134 military passenger plane, known as NATO Crusty, which was escorted by two Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker fighter jets and an AN-12 Cub military transport plane”. The RAF described the operation as ensuring that the UK, Germany and other NATO countries “stand with their Estonian ally at this tense time”.
Meanwhile, in addition to the air strike, the tension in the words also increases. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova attacked Western forces: “US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has unequivocally outlined the destructive American and, consequently, Ukrainian position, stating that the United States is determined to continue supplying Kiev with arms and military equipment and not to engage diplomatically with Russia to resolve the crisis. The Kiev regime has long been a tool of the United States and other NATO countries in the fight against Russia. And they are not at all interested in a peaceful solution in Ukraine.”
