NATO begins air force drills in Baltic region

A collection of NATO member states has begun two days of training drills in the Baltic Sea region as the transatlantic military alliance moves to shore up its eastern defences in the face of Russia’s offensive in Ukraine.

Air forces from Hungary, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom are taking part in the exercises. NATO candidate Finland is also involved in the drills, reports Al Jazeera.

“The exercise series integrates more than two dozen fighter and support aircraft and NATO airborne early warning aircraft with NATO and national command and control centres,” NATO said in a statement.

“The realistic drills train Allied forces to deter and – if needed – defend against any aggression,” it added.
