Two U.S military aircraft performed reconnaissance flights near the Russian border in the southern Baltic and near the Crimea, Interfax reported with a reference to Western websites that track the movement of military aircraft.

It is reported that an RC-135W strategic reconnaissance aircraft of the U.S. Air Force that took off from Mildenhall airbase in the United Kingdom circled along the southern border of the Kaliningrad region, in Polish airspace. In addition, a U.S. spy satellite flew over the Kaliningrad region at an altitude of about 724 kilometers.

Meanwhile, a second reconnaissance aircraft, a P-8A Poseidon patrol anti-submarine aircraft of the U.S Air Force, took off from the Sigonella airbase in Sicily, and performed an operational mission over the Black Sea waters to the south-west of Sevastopol.
