Finland will not continue with investigation into the most recent airspace violation, reported the national broadcasting company YLE.
 
The Gulf of Finland Coast Guard District cited the termination of the investigation was based on previous experience in which no charges were brought against anyone in the country.
 
A Russian Antonov AN-72 transport aircraft is suspected to have trespassed into the Finnish airspace near Porvoo in late August.
 
The Russian plane, on its way from Kaliningrad to Moscow entered the Finnish airspace unauthorised. At most, the plane entered four kilometres into Finnish airspace.
 
Air Force Hornet fighter jets went to identify the plane and instructed the Russian aircraft to leave the Finnish airspace. Afterwards, the Russian transport plane took another route towards the East and flew into the international airspace.
