The Russian border guards provided to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine the response toward the spotted fact of the violation of the Ukrainian state border by the helicopter from Russia as the border guard service reported.
“In their response, the Russian border guard try to state that the aircraft was used along their border and they do not recognize the fact of the violation. Meanwhile, without confirmation, they refer to rates of incomprehensible ‘mechanisms of in-flight recording control’,” the message says.
It is noted that the Ukrainian side is not surprised by statements of the Russian state bodies. Russia is used to deny and it does not recognize committed violations, always referring to groundlessness of provided facts.
Ukrainian border guards observed a violation of air space by a Russian helicopter. The incident took place in Sumy region, northern Ukraine on March 16. The helicopter proceeded 50 meters deep into the Ukrainian territory and then returned to Russia.
