MOSCOW, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Monday the country had allowed Ukrainian observers to inspect the Kursk and Belgorod regions to convince themselves nothing threatens Ukraine.
“During the inspection, Ukrainian representatives can be given an opportunity to inspect an above-mentioned area to make it clear no military activities have been conducted there,” Antonov said.
“I should say the parachute regiment of the Pskov division will make an observation flight over the territory of Russia from March 17 and conduct an inspection under the 2011 Vienna document,” Antonov said.
Last week, on March 12, Russia allowed Ukraine to make an observation flight over its territory within the Open Skies Treaty. The flight was scheduled to take place on March 17. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry made a request to the Russian Defense Ministry on March 11. The observation flight was asked to be made for the first time since the signing of the Open Skies Treaty. However, the flight has not been made. The Ukrainian ministry said Russia had set forth large financial and technical conditions.
The Russian Defense Ministry said Ukraine had been proposed to pay the flight before it had been made. Observations flights are made for states’ account, the Russian ministry said.
