US fighters will patrol the skies during exercises “West-2017”

The United States sent a reinforced squad of fighters to patrol the airspace over the countries-NATO members – Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia during the Russian military exercises near the Baltic States next month.
About it reports Reuters.
Joint strategic exercises of the armed forces of Russia and Belarus will be held from 14 to 20 September in Western Russia and Belarus. This has caused concern in the region, although Russia said that the troops will only train and this will be the beginning of the invasion.
Seven American aircraft carriers F-15C arrived this week at the Siauliai airfield to patrol the skies over the Baltic countries. This is three more aircraft than usual are sent to the region since the modernization of the NATO mission to patrol the airspace of the Baltic States after the Crimean crisis of 2014.
