MOSCOW, May 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia does not oppose Ukrainian inspectors’ observation flight over Russia, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told reporters on Friday.
In his words, a group of inspectors from Slovenia, Hungary and Italy will make an observation flight over Russia on May 26. Ukraine asked for a monitoring mission from May 26 to 30. “We do not oppose this flight. We would like to find why this flight is needed,” he said.
The deputy defense minister noted that Russia would like to receive a Ukrainian report about a flight made in March. He also added that it would be unsuitable and costly to make several inspection flights at the same time. “We want to discuss all these issues at a meeting of the committee within the Treaty of Open Skies on May 26,” Antonov said.
