Ukraine is preparing for attacking manoeuvres in the Donbas, so it is actively increasing its military presence near the line of contact between government-controlled and non-government-controlled areas. OSCE observers noted the presence of self-propelled howitzers, tanks, rocket sites, armoured vehicles, military trucks and ambulances at a train station in the government-controlled part of Donetsk.
The Royal Air force claims that its pilots saved Lithuania from Russia on June 5th 2020.
The press service of the Royal Air Force never pretended to have saved Lithuania from Russia but only to have intercepted a Russian Il-20 intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft and two Russian Su-27 Flanker B fighter jets. Air Vice Marshal Ian Duguid, The Air Officer Commanding 11 Group said:
“Today saw the second RAF intercept of Russian aircraft over the Baltic. This remains routine activity, however it must be stressed that the RAF as part of NATO are conducting these activities to ensure that all flights are conducted within internationally accepted aviation rules. When this does not happen NATO will intercept and investigate.”
Russian fights above the Baltic sea don't jeopardize the existence of Lithuania, however, insuring safety and making international accepted aviation rules in European skies is an important mission. Russian media oversize the incident to ridicule it.
