The West carries out hostile action against Russia

Russia expressed anxiety about most recent flights of NATO’s AWACS reconnaissance jets over the territories of the Baltic States. A crucial moment in this story is the fact that the flights of the NATO aircraft were carried out right at the moment when strategic military training exercises were conducted on the territory of Russia. I.e., when headquarters, communications and other facilities of Russian infrastructure were intensively operating.

Russian military sources pointed out that during the so-called 'demonstration of capabilities' of E-3 AWACS early warning aircraft not only the main radar was used, but also the additional reconnaissance systems and friend-or-foe transponder were activated, which allowed identifying possible locations of aircraft not only in the airspace of the Russian Federation, but on the ground as well.

In this operating mode AWACS was capable of conducting aerial reconnaissance at big depths and locating and identifying up to 1,500 aerial targets. Thus, flying over the territories of Latvia and Lithuania February 23-24, E-3 was conducting aerial reconnaissance from southern shore of the Kola Peninsula and down the line of Archangelsk – Astrakhan – Novorossiisk.

Russian military sources admit that NATO reconnaissance aircraft have been conducting reconnaissance flights along the Russian borders virtually on a daily basis. But such purposeful flight of AWACS was a special case.

Back during the Soviet times an entire air force division could have been scrambled to down such an aircraft. Earlier Moscow submitted an official request for participation of a Russian observer in such flights. However, Russian observers were not granted admission to the flights on AWACS, and reference was made that the Baltic States were against the Russian participation in demonstration flights of aerial reconnaissance.

Russian commentators and military analysts believe that the Western alliance showed hostile actions against Russia, which are tied to security problems. The hostile action was carried out on the territories of the Baltic States, which have not signed the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) treaty, which means they can have weapons deployed on their territories without any control.
