As part of NATO's efforts to assure the Alliance's eastern members of the Alliance's solidarity - the so-called assurance measures - a Danish challenger aircraft is patrolling the Baltic Sea. The crew monitors the waters and reports their findings to NATO.
NATO's assurance measures have been implemented since 2014, when the crisis in Ukraine began.
