Russian media reported the incident and analyzed that the Russian military seemed to see it as a regular encounter. According to todays Russian website news, 5 local time, two U.S. reconnaissance aircraft appeared in the Baltic Sea near Kaliningrad. Among them, one is RC-135V electronic reconnaissance aircraft, the other is the US Navy P-8A Poseidon marine patrol aircraft. The Russian military is alerted by its proximity to the Russian border. Reported that the US RC-135V electronic reconnaissance aircraft took off from the Royal Air Force Base of Mildenhall, flying across the territory of Poland and approaching from southern Russia. The US Navy P-8A sea god sea patrol aircraft was intercepted by Russian Soviet -27 fighters. Up to now, neither the US nor the Russian military has made any statement about the incident. In this regard, the Russian media believe that the meeting of the US Russian military aircraft seems to have become a regular meal, so the two sides of the United States and Russia have not revealed the fuss. The report further points out that in recent years, the military aircraft of the US and NATO allies appears to be becoming more and more common in the international airspace, and even in many cases it is very close to Russian territory. At the same time, Russian fighters have repeatedly implemented interception. According to the Russian Ministry of defense statistics, over the past two weeks, there have been 35 military aircraft carrying out missions near the Russian border, while Russian fighters had 15 emergency lifts, but there was no conflict. Although the Russian military considers these tasks to be a standard, legal and safe routine, the Russians have repeatedly called for the US side to stop such activities.
