Three Russian military planes violate Swedish airspace as Putin sends chilling NATO threat


A Russian signal reconnaissance plane and two Russian fighter planes entered Swedish civilian surveillance airspace north of Visby on Thursday without reporting the approach according to a source speaking to the Swedish press. The breach came as Swedish forces are currently participating in the annual naval exercise Baltops, where, among others, the amphibious ship USS Kearsarge visited Stockholm.

The event in Sweden coincided with a Russian exercise in Kaliningrad running until June 18.

The airspace breach came on Thursday morning according to reports as Russian surveillance aircraft became interested in the Swedish drills.

Russia deployed an Ilyushin Il-20 spy plane, accompanied by two Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jets.

The three Russian planes then probably went down at low altitude over the USS Kearsarge to probably be able to photograph the American ship, according to DN’s source.
