Russia suspected of interfering with aerial GPS

Some 1,600 planes have suffered mysterious interference with their GPS while flying near the Baltic Sea. Suspicions point to Russia, although without evidence (Putin allocates 12 billion to save Russian airlines).

According to information reported by pilots, 1,614 aircraft, mostly civilian, have encountered problems. Most have been reported in Polish airspace, although cases have also been recorded in German, Danish, Swedish, Latvian and Lithuanian areas.

The interference points as a base to the mini-region of Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave between Lithuania and Poland, disconnected from Russia. Russia is believed to have part of its electronic warfare arsenal there.

A military expert has warned that this may be a warning from Russian power. Historically, experts say, Russia has an advantage in this area. Probably, experts say, NATO is not in a position to match Russian power in this regard.
