Ukraine offers NATO to use airspace near Crimea

Source: UAWire

Ukraine counts on NATO’s support in monitoring air traffic situation along the border with Russia and offers to use airspace near Simferopol region for NATO air operations, said the Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure, Vladyslav Krykliy, during talks with NATO Assistant Secretary General for Defence Policy and Planning Patrick Turner.

The meeting took place as part of a working visit of the Ukrainian government delegation to Brussels.

"Ukraine is pursuing its chosen course of integration into Euro-Atlantic systems of collective security. One important area of this integration is Ukraine's participation in the NATO Air Situation Data Exchange program. In today's environment, it is important to strengthen the control of civil air traffic and to respond to crisis situations in the Black Sea area and the area of the Ukrainian Armed Forces operation in the Donbas. Taking into account the updated EASA bulletin on flight safety in the Simferopol region and the lifting of restrictions of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on flights in Simferopol Flight Information Region, we propose to use this part of the airspace for NATO air operations, for transporting troops, equipment, cargo, etc. We count on NATO’s support in monitoring air traffic situation in the region,” said Krykliy.

The sides discussed the participation of the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure in the preparation for joint Ukraine-NATO exercises in the Black Sea "Coherent Resilience 2021" as well as cooperation in the field of cybersecurity.

3. Uncle Vlad screwed himself big time.

The whole Crimea affair was to insure NATO stays away from Ukraine. Now he will have NATO planes closer to Russia than ever.

4. In your face, Vlad.

Now that Trump is gone, Putin’s protection from Washington is also gone. Hallelujah! I hope Biden looses our best cyber experts on Russia to take down their disinformation apparatus.

5. NATO planes near Crimea. That will put the pressure on Putin. NATO

putting pressure on the western Russian Federation and separatists putting pressure on the eastern Russian Federation. Let's see if Putin has the resources to cover both when the separatists make their move and kick out the few Russian forces in the east. Especially when China sends support and makes its play for the eastern provinces.

6. I flew a Navy plane into Simferopal in 1998.

Never got to deliver my cargo because of a dispute between Russian and Ukrainian authorities. This brinkmanship has been going on a long time.
