RIGA, March 18. /TASS/. Latvia’s armed forces said on Wednesday Russian fighter jets and submarines have been spotted near the country's border.
"Near Latvia’s exclusive economic zone, at a distance of 30 nautical miles from Latvia’s territorial waters, the Latvian Armed Forces spotted three Kilo-class submarines, an auxiliary ship and a hydrographic vessel," Latvia’s military said in a statement.
Latvia’s armed forces also said that a NATO typhoon patrol jet spotted four Russian fighter jets flying over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea.
Latvia claimed earlier that Russia escalated its air and naval activity in the territory bordering the Baltic country. Riga said that Russian military aircraft and ships approached Latvia’s borders more than 250 times last year.
At the end of January, Britain summoned the Russian ambassador for explanations of Russian military planes’ flights over the English Channel near the UK territory.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said that "all flights of the Russian Air Force have been carried out and are carried out in strict compliance with international rules of using airspace over international waters without violating the borders of other countries."
