On Oct. 2, NATO fighter-jets were scrambled to intercept an IL-20 and an IL-76 flying from mainland Russia to the Kaliningrad region, the Lithuanian Defense Ministry said.

The aircraft had pre-filed flight plans, had their onboard transponders on and maintained radio communication with the regional flight control center.

The NATO air-policing mission is conducted from Lithuania and Estonia.
