Finland scrambles fighter after Russian military aircraft enters airspace

Agence France-Presse | Sep 17, 2007


HELSINKI: Finland scrambled a jet fighter after a Russian air force transport penetrated more than 4 km into its airspace, the country's military said.


Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen said he would be seeking an explanation from Moscow if the incident were confirmed.


Defence ministry spokesman Jyrki Livonen said an F-18 Hornet fighter had been sent to identify the plane.


The incident occurred near Porvoo, 60 km east of Helsinki, where similar intrusions by Russian aircraft occurred in August

Ancora con questi sconfinamenti... Comunque, a mio parere, inglesi, finlandesi e norvegesi sanno benissimo lo scopo di questi voli, che più che di "deterrenza", io li chiamerei di "presenza", cioè è risaputo che il governo di Mosca manda in giro qualche bombardiere strategico solo per far notare la sua presenza. Potranno anche centrare le vicende diplomatiche con Londra, ma alla fine lo scopo è sempre quello.
