NATO air patrol mission fighters spotted two Russian bombers off the coast of Latvia. The press office of the Latvian military reported that on Twitter on August 1.

The incident occurred on Thursday; two Su-24s approached the country's state border over the Baltic Sea.

Earlier, Russian military aircraft violated South Korea's airspace above the East Sea twice on July 23, prompting the Air Force to scramble fighter jets and fire warning shots. According to the South Korean news agency, the Russian bomber trespassed in the territorial sky above the East Sea near South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo earlier in the day in a three-minute flight twice each in breach of international treaties.
