Eyewitness: “3 military aircraft in the sky over Daugavpils

Citizens inform, that in the morning sky over Daugavpils today, on March, 31st, three military planes have been noticed.

There is a beautiful view over Daugavpils this morning. 3 military aircraft were in combat formation along the border. You can find out in more detail what it was, since these aircraft were not on the Flightradar24 website. Uncomfortable feeling”, – the reader who sent the photos wrote to us. The pictures were taken at 9:29.

Other readers who saw planes in the peaceful Daugavpils sky turned to the editorial office in the morning.

The people of Daugavpils have no reason to worry – as you know, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the forces of the NATO alliance conduct increased patrols along the airspace border with Russia and Belarus.

In mid-March, in just one week, fighter jets carrying out a NATO air patrol mission in the airspace of the Baltic countries took off three times and escorted Russian military aircraft violating flight rules, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense reported.

The NATO air policing mission in the Baltic States is carried out from Lithuania and Estonia.

Let us recall that Latvia became a full member of NATO on March 29, 2004 – this year marks the 18th anniversary of our republic’s entry into the alliance.
