MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) — A group of Russian inspectors will carry out a patrol mission over Italy from February 27 to March 2 within the framework of the Treaty on Open Skies, the Defence Ministry’ press service told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The An-30B crew will take off from Italy’s Ciampino,” the source said. “A maximum flight distance will be 2,015 kilometers.”
On-board the plane Russian and Italian experts will monitor compliance of the surveillance systems with the existing agreements.
This will be this year’s second mission of Russian inspectors under the Treaty on Open Skies.
The treaty was signed by 27 countries in 1992 and ratified by all signatories in 1995.
