The Ukrainian offensive in the Kherson area continues.
At least two NATO assets are currently monitoring the situation in the area:
- USAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. 62-4138 – callsign JAKE12) took off from RAF Midenhall
- RAF Boeing RC-135W (reg. ZZ665 – f/n RRR7272) took off from RAF Waddington.
Note how the Rivet Joint USAF took off from the UK and not Souda, the base from which RC-135s operating in the Black Sea sector usually departed
