Netherlands announced that the F-35 fighters of this country were able to intercept Russian military planes in the sky of Poland.

Iran PressEurope: The war in Ukraine is approaching its first anniversary. The tension between Russia and European countries continues to increase. Also, the European countries and the US continue to provide financial and military support to Ukraine.

Two Dutch F-35 fighters intercepted a formation of three Russian military aircraft over Poland and escorted them out, the Netherlands' defence ministry said in a statement late on Monday.

"The then unknown aircraft approached the Polish NATO area of responsibility from Kaliningrad," according to the ministry's statement.

Kaliningrad is a Russian Baltic coast enclave located between NATO and European Union members Poland and Lithuania.

"After identification, it turned out to be three aircraft: a Russian IL-20M Coot-A that was escorted by two Su-27 Flankers. The Dutch F-35s escorted the formation from a distance and handed over the escort to NATO partners." 219
