Russia: Three MiG warplanes with hypersonic missiles moved to Kaliningrad enclave

The Russian Defense Ministry announced today that three MiG-31E warplanes equipped with hypersonic Kinzhal missiles have been moved and are now stationed in the Russian region of Kaliningrad, the Interfax news agency reported.

According to the state-run Russian news agency RIA, these MiGs will be on duty 24 hours a day.

Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave on the Baltic coast between NATO and EU members Poland and Lithuania, became a flashpoint after Lithuania restricted the transit of goods to it through its territory, with Russia promising retaliation.

Tensions in the region have risen since Russia invaded Ukraine six months ago with tens of thousands of troops in what it described as a “special military operation”.

Earlier today, the Finnish Defense Ministry reported that two Russian MiG-31s ​​had violated Finnish airspace near the town of Porvoo in the Gulf of Finland, 150 kilometers from Russia.
