The An-22 transport airplane was flying without a plan but maintained contact, Viktorija Cieminytė of the Ministry of National Defence confirmed to BNS on Monday.

“The An-22 was flying from the Russian Federation to Kaliningrad,” she said.

Norwegian and Italian aviators and fighter-jets are guarding the Baltic skies from Šiauliai, northern Lithuania.

The Alliance’s officials maintain that the flights of Russian warplanes with their transponders switched off constitute a threat to civilian aviation.
