 Subject:  External interference with GPS signals in Europe

Finland’s Prime Minister, Juha Sipila, condemned external interference with his country’s GPS signal during the latest NATO war games. Last week, Finnish air traffic was heavily disrupted as a result of such interference and Norway had had the same problem a week before that. The Prime Minister of Finland suspects that Russia interfered in order to hinder the success of NATO’s exercises.

Is the Commission considering investing in better security for the Member States that neighbour Russia?

If so, what measures does it hope to implement in order to improve security and ensure that the day-to-day activities of the Member States are not affected?
