Russia’s ever-increasing number of intercepts of foreign reconnaissance planes near its borders indicates NATO’s drive to detect weak points in the country’s air defense, Russian military expert Boris Rozhin told Sputnik.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on its website that Russian jet fighters have conducted at least six intercepts of foreign reconnaissance planes near Russia’s borders in the past week.
In mid-June, 14 such intercepts were carried out by Russian warplanes, according to the official newspaper of the Russian Defense Ministry Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star).

On June 21, a NATO F-16 fighter aircraft attempted to approach the plane carrying Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu over neutral Baltic waters, but was promptly chased away by a Russian Su-27 fighter jet.
