London: Tensions between Russia and Ukraine continue to escalate. Meanwhile, jumping into this battle, the Royal Airforce of Britain has planned to deploy its most advanced Typhoon fighter aircraft in Romania. The British Army Chief said that these aircraft would monitor the skies in the vicinity of the Black Sea. Britain already has a military base in Romania. It is from here that British fighter aircraft and drones fly and carry out operations against ISIS in Syria. According to the British Air Force, these Typhoon fighters will be assisted by soldiers of the No. 1 Expeditionary Logistics Squadron and No. 2 Mechanical Transport Squadron.
The UK Ministry of Defense reported that the deployment of Typhoon fighter jets is part of Operation Biloxi, a NATO air policing mission that takes place every year. Of course Britain has described it as a regular deployment, but experts have described it as a step taken in response to Russia's increasingly aggressive policy. More than 100 British Army personnel will travel to Kiev to conduct joint maneuvers with Ukraine in the summer season. The Ministry of Defense stated that Operation Biloxi is part of the support of the NATO South Air Policing Mission to monitor the airspace of our allied countries. They will be removed from different UK airbases this week and deployed in Romania.
Earlier, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zalensky, said that they are still waiting for talks with Putin. Zalensky made this request for the conversation 3 weeks ago after the death of four of his soldiers in a Russian army mortar attack. A spokesman for the Ukrainian president said that we hope that Putin will not refuse to negotiate. The Government of Ukraine claims that Russia has deployed 41,000 troops on the eastern border and 42,000 troops in Crimea. Since then, Ukraine has also increased the number of troops in its forward areas.
