Russian aircraft briefly entered Turkish airspace


The Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday that a Russian military aircraft had briefly entered Turkish airspace because of bad weather conditions.

“On Saturday, October 3, a Russian Sukhoi-30 combat aircraft briefly, for a few seconds, entered Turkish airspace as it was making a maneuver over mountain-woody forest terrain to return to Hmeymim airfield after a planned combat flight,” the major-general told a briefing.
