Ottawa (AFP) - Six Canadian CF-18 fighter jets left for Romania Tuesday to take part in increased NATO patrols over Eastern Europe amid rising tensions with Russia over Ukraine.

The multi-role military aircraft took off from their base in Bagotville, Quebec, at 9 a.m. local time (1300 GMT) as Canadian Defense Minister Rob Nicholson looked on.

In Romania, Nicholson said, the jets will be conducting "training activities in support of (NATO) reassurance measures" in Central and Eastern Europe to demonstrate what another official described as "the strength of Allied solidarity in response to Russian aggression."

Do Canadian fighter aircraft refuel in mid-air or do they fly from Canada to Iceland to Europe?

Let the Soviet rats run. All the better for Ukraine.

If they weren't Soviets they'd be running to Poland and the safety of Ethnic Ukrainians in Poland.
