MOSCOW, September 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry has rejected Estonia’s accusations that a Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber allegedly breached Estonian airspace.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement that a combat plane of the Russian Aerospace Force had made a scheduled flight under the agreed route to the Kaliningrad Region over the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea. The Russian warplane’s crew constantly maintained communications, including with Estonian flight controllers, the statement says.
"The Russian plane performed its flight in strict compliance with the International Rules of Using the Airspace, without violating the borders of other states, which was confirmed by recording equipment data," the Defense Ministry said.
