In 2023, hundreds of Russian warplanes entered Alliance airspace. A total of 300 Russian planes were intercepted and diverted by NATO in Alliance airspace.

NATO Spokesperson Dylan White said: “Russia’s war against Ukraine has created the most dangerous security situation in Europe in decades. NATO fighter jets are on duty around the clock, ready to scramble in case of suspicious or unannounced flights near the airspace of our Allies. Air policing is an important way in which NATO provides security for our Allies.”

After the start of the Ukraine war, in addition to Russian warplanes, there have been incidents of Russian missiles entering the alliance territories.

A Russian missile fired over Ukraine landed in a Russian village.
