'Only right' RAF joins Nato Awacs mission in Ukraine

Britain's E-3D Awacs will join the Nato mission in Ukraine, the Ministry of Defence said tonight.

We have said that the UK will meet all our commitments under the next level of Nato Crisis Response measures.

As the UK E-3D Awacs (Airborne Early Warning and Control Aircraft) is part of the Nato Awacs Force, then it is only right that the UK undertakes its share of this mission.

– MoD spokesperson
