“Sam helps me out, and friend to perish” – apparently because the Polish government paraphrased the old saying, closing its airspace for “caravan” Russian military transport aircraft, which were transferred to Italy medical team to help in the fight against coronavirus. Examining the route of our Il-76 in the service FlightRadar, the Russian Internet users have noticed a strange hook that made the aircraft. Their way lay through Sochi, where he carried out refueling, and this extra one thousand kilometers. Obviously much shorter and faster it was to fly through the airspace of Belarus, Poland, the Czech Republic… What made our videoconferencing to fly “around”?
Officially, this is not to say neither the authorities of the countries of the European Union, in the airspace which lies a short track, nor the defense Ministry of Russia. However, in the expert environment, there was only one explanation: Poland has closed its skies for Russian aircraft since they thought that she was carrying military cargo. Amazing solidarity and as a member country of the EU, and as the most loyal member of NATO. – Poland did not miss Russian planes to Italy through its airspace. This meanness on the level of state policy, – said in his Twitter Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on information policy Alexei Pushkov. – Moreover, that aid was in the country-the ally of Poland in the EU and NATO. Russia in no way should now go towards Poland. Anything. Pandemic coronavirus once again exposed the run-up the problem of the Old World, which is under threat of the disease is not gone from the declared unity, neither in the political nor in a military or humanitarian sense. That awkward moment when a member of the EU and NATO does not save the allies, and potential adversaries of Russia, China, and even Cuba.
