Foreign Ministry handed US a note of protest over NATO aircraft incidents
The Foreign Ministry handed a note of protest to the US Embassy over the “provocative actions” of NATO military aircraft, which endanger civilian flights. Commentary from the representative of the department Maria Zakharova published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The statement lists several potentially dangerous incidents from the point of view of Russia. For example, the case on December 3, when the US Air Force CL-600 reconnaissance aircraft crossed the flight path of the Aeroflot aircraft over the Black Sea.
“Reserving the right to respond to the corresponding challenges from the United States and the NATO members led by it, we call for a substantive dialogue on security guarantees and the discussion of ways to reduce military and political tensions, including options for preventing dangerous incidents in the air and at sea. Otherwise, all the means at our disposal will be used to prevent and eliminate emerging threats, ”the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
