FTimes-STT Report, June 28

Two Russian army aircraft allegedly violated Finland airspace and made an unauthorised entry into the Finnish territory on Thursday morning, defence ministry sources said.

Earlier, Russian fighting planes reportedly violated the Finland airspace on June 11 and May 13, although the Russian authority has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Sources said that the hornets from air defence recognized the two planes entered into the 1.8 kilometres of Finnish airspace over the Porvoo at Finland-Russia bordering area at about 9:00 a.m. and violated the airspace for a minute.

The border patrol has started investigation in this regard.

Earlier, on June 11, two SU-27 assault fighters and two TU-22 bombers reportedly entered into the Finnish airspace over the Gulf of Finland for a short time.

Another Russian military aircraft on May 13 also violated the Finland airspace when an AN-26 aircraft of Russian Military made the unauthorised entry into the Gulf of Finland.

The Russian authority claimed that the aircraft did not violate the Finnish airspace that time.

The Russian spokesman, Vladimir Drobyshevsky in May said that the aircraft did not violate the Finland airspace, although flown over the Gulf of Finland and made a course correction due to weather conditions.
