Around half of the Russian planes were fighter-jets. The NATO jets also identified several transport and passenger planes over the Baltic Sea, it said in a press release.

Most of the Russian aircraft had their automatic transponders switched off.

The biggest number of scrambles took place last Thursday, when the Alliance’s jets took off three times in total and intercepted ten aircraft.
