Nato secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg has said the organisation’s “relationship with Russia that is at least predictable and stable”.
It has been reported that the Russian planes are sometimes not transmitting transponder codes so have posed a potential risk to civilian flights.
Nato said the latest interceptions of Russian jets over Western airspace involved six groups of Russian planes.
Relations between Moscow and Nato have deteriorated since 2014 when Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine.
Tensions have continued as Russian-backed rebels took over areas of eastern Ukraine.
Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has requested that Russia resume dialogue in the form of the Nato-Russia Council.
However, the Nato-Russia Council has not met since 2019.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said Nato was typically seeing Russia as a “threat from the East”.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s commander in chief, Ruslan Khomchak, has accused Russia of waging an “aggressive policy” against his nation.
He has pointed to the current build-up of troops on the Russian – Ukrainian border as a sign of escalating tensions.
