Russian planes intercepted near Poland

“See how two French Mirage 2000-5 intercepted two Russian Su-30-M aircraft over the Baltic Sea yesterday,” NATO Allied Air Command (AIRCOM) wrote on Friday. A recording of the action was attached to the entry.

Immediately afterwards, the fighters were reassigned to a new mission, during which they also intercepted a Russian AN-72 flying in international airspace north of Poland.

The French planes that participated in the action are stationed on a daily basis at the airport in Šiauliai, Lithuania. This is part of the mission to protect the eastern flank of the North Atlantic Alliance and strengthened control of the airspace of the Baltic countries, as well as Poland.

The Baltic Air Policing (BAP) mission, as part of the military surveillance of the airspace of the Baltic States, is carried out based on a rotational service system implemented by allied countries since 2004. As part of the 62nd rotation of NATO Forces, from November 15, 2023 to March 15, 2024, another rotation of PMC Orlik 12 is on guard over the Baltic sky. Nearly 150 Polish soldiers and military personnel are stationed at the air base in Amari, Lithuania.
