Russian Jets Fly Close to NATO Warships in Baltic Sea – Putin’s Intimidation Bid Amid Ukraine War?

Ukraine War

NATO claims two Russian jets conducted an “unsafe and unprofessional approach” toward their ships in the Baltic Sea on Nov. 17. NATO’s maritime command said the jets flew over “the force at an altitude of 300 feet and a distance of 73 metres”. NATO also said that the Russian pilots failed to respond to communications before flying over the warships. It is not clear exactly why the Russian fighter jets flew so close to the NATO maritime group. The aggressive posture of the Russian jets could have been interpreted as an attack sortie.
