Sec. Blinken and a U.S. Congressional delegation

led by Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Gregory Meeks are in Poland. I was watching adsbexchange.com a couple hours ago and a C32A left Rzeszow Poland, were they were meeting various officials and "touring" the relief/refugee efforts, and landed in Moldova. I thought that was interesting as it wasnt on the schedule. Moldova has been dealing with their own Russian separatist movement for awhile, but could be in a position to "bend" some rules as they are not in the EU (They just applied) or NATO and are the only country as such that directly borders Ukraine. There has been a big increase in diplomatic flights around Eastern Europe in the last 48 hours. May mean nothing, but may show fluidity on the diplomatic front. Something to ponder.

Several reports of downed Russian aircraft

including 2 SU34's, being reported in the last 24 hr's. 6 fighter/bombers and 3 helicopters by my count, some of which yet to be confirmed. Could be a good sign that that the weapons being supplied are getting where they need to be.

Swedish defense minister calls Russian violation of airspace 'unacceptable'

Wed, March 2, 2022, 2:14 PM·1 min read
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) -Four Russian fighter jets briefly entered Swedish territory over the Baltic Sea on Wednesday, the Swedish Armed Forces said, sparking a swift condemnation from Sweden's defence minister.

Two Russian SU27 and two SU24 fighter jets briefly entered Swedish airspace east of the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, Sweden's Armed Forces said in a statement, adding that Swedish JAS 39 Gripen jets were sent to document the violation.

"The Russian violation of Swedish airspace is of course completely unacceptable," Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist told news agency TT. "It will lead to a firm diplomatic response from Sweden. Swedish sovereignty and territory must always be respected."

Sweden's Armed Forces said the situation was under control and that the incident showed preparedness was good.
