Russian Fighter Jets Fly Within 73 meters of NATO Ships In the Baltic Sea

International Military - NATO said Russian fighter jets approached and flew a few meters from its ship in the Baltic Sea last Thursday. NATO warned the incident raised the risk of miscalculations, errors and accidents. NATO said the ship was conducting a routine operation when two Russian planes made an unsafe and unprofessional approach. This is because the Russian plane came within 73 meters of the ship and flew at an altitude of only 91 meters.

"On the morning of November 17, two Russian warplanes made an unsafe and unprofessional approach to Standing Nato Maritime Group 1 (SNMG1), which was conducting routine operations in the Baltic Sea," . "The Russian pilot failed to respond to communications of requests by Allied forces to stand and overfly at 91 meters and a range of 73 meters," said a NATO statement as quoted from, Saturday (19/11/2022).

NATO considers the interaction unsafe and unprofessional because it is conducted in a known hazardous area, which is activated for air defense training, and because of the altitude and proximity of the aircraft. Such interactions increase the risk of miscalculations, errors and accidents.

"NATO forces act responsibly, fulfilling their mission, in full compliance with international air and maritime regulations," NATO said. NATO then warned it would respond appropriately to any future disruptions amid very high tensions. appropriate for any interference with NATO's lawful activities in the area that endangers the safety of its aircraft, ships or crew. NATO does not seek confrontation and does not pose a threat," NATO said.

The Kremlin itself has not publicly commented on the incident. It comes after the world was put on red alert over fears that a Russian missile had struck a village in Poland earlier this week. Any direct attack on a single NATO member risks drawing the entire military bloc into an armed confrontation with Russia.

Western governments now believe the weapon striking Poland was a defunct Ukrainian air defense missile launched to repel a Russian attack.

Kiev has denied this and demanded access to the blast site and has publicly insisted that Russia was to blame. Concerns were raised after the United States disclosed that backchannel communications between Washington and Moscow that had remained open to prevent war from breaking out even when relations were at rock bottom failed within hours of the explosion in Poland.

The chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, said his staff tried to arrange a phone call with his Russian counterpart, Valery Gerasimov. "Several attempts were made. No success. My staff was unable to put me in touch with General Gerasimov," Milley told reporters.
