The air defense quick reaction alert forces of Russia’s Black Sea and Baltic Fleets shadowed US and German spy planes over the Black and Baltic Seas, the National Defense Control Center reported on Wednesday.

“Today, the reconnaissance radar systems of these fleets’ air defense quick reaction alert forces detected US Air Force P-8A Poseidon and U-2S reconnaissance planes over the Black Sea and a German Air Force P-3C Orion spy aircraft over the Baltic Sea,” the Center said in a statement.

“The air defense quick reaction alert forces of the Black Sea and Baltic Fleets carried out their shadowing,” it said. No violations of Russia’s state border were allowed, the National Defense Control Center stressed.
