STOCKHOLM, November 24. /TASS/. Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden Margot Wallstrom who is visiting Finland, has raised concerns about the incident with downing of Russia’s Sukhoi Su-24 warplane over Syrian territory, Finnish National News Agency FNB reported on Tuesday.
This is just a demonstration how dangerous the region has become where interests of so many countries collided, the Minister said.
The Su-24 frontline bomber of the Russian aviation group in Syria crashed in the Syrian territory earlier on Tuesday. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the plane was downed by an air-to-air missile launched by a Turkish F-16 fighter.
According to President, at the moment of the attack the Russian Su-24 plane was flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters at a distance of 1 km from the Turkish border. Putin called the incident a "stab in the back" of Russia delivered by "terrorism accomplices."
