HELSINKI, October 7. /TASS/. Two Russian fighter jets allegedly violated the air borders of Finland on Thursday, October 6, according to the Finnish Air Force.
"Russian SU-27 fighter suspected of having violated Finnish airspace in the afternoon on October 6. Later in the evening there was another suspected violation of airspace by the same aircraft type. The Air Force identified and described both machines," the Finnish Air Force said in a Friday statement.
