Amid rising tensions over the war in Ukraine, the U.S. military has established a communications hotline with Russian forces to prevent an accidental clash between the two nuclear powers, two U.S. defense officials say. wjhenn reports:

mid rising tensions over the war in Ukraine, the U.S. military has established a communications hotline with Russian forces to prevent an accidental clash between the two nuclear powers, two U.S. defense officials say. The so-called de-confliction line is intended to ensure that the two countries’ pilots or warships do not mistakenly fire upon one another as they conduct daily missions in eastern Europe.

American forces are not fighting inside Ukraine, where Russia has deployed more than 100,000 troops and is carrying out daily bombing runs, but both militaries are now operating near each other along Ukraine’s borders. The U.S. has sent fighter jets to multiple countries on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s eastern flank for air policing flights in solidarity with the transatlantic alliance.

The situation in Eastern Europe is different. The U.S. and its allies are not operating over the same country as Russia, but the Biden Administration recognized the potential for miscalculation. U.S. officials said the channel in eastern Europe will include a phone line, but they declined to provide additional details.
