MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday that a Russian military aircraft had briefly entered Turkish airspace because of bad weather conditions.
"On Saturday, October 3, a Russian Sukhoi-30 combat aircraft briefly, for a few seconds, entered Turkish airspace as it was making a maneuver over mountain-woody forest terrain to return to Hmeymim airfield after a planned combat flight," the major-general told a briefing.
"After checking and analyzing data of objective control, the command of the air group of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria has taken necessary measures to prevent such incidents in the future," he said.
"As you can see on the map, Hmeymim airfield is situated about 30 kilometers from the Syrian-Turkish border. Under certain weather conditions, approach to the airfield is made from the north," ministry’s spokesman Igor Konashenkov told a briefing.
"That is why, the incident occurred because of unfavourable weather conditions in that area," he said, warning against attempts to find some conspiracy motives behind the incident.
