The ministry specified that the Russian border has not been violated.

“The flight of the Russian fighter was carried out in strict compliance with international rules for the use of airspace over neutral waters without crossing airways and without coming dangerously close to a foreign aircraft,” the ministry said.

Accidents between Russian aircraft and those of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member countries have multiplied in recent years, even before the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022.

In April, a Russian fighter jet intercepted a German navy aircraft over the Baltic as it approached the Russian border.
