Russian Planes Violate Danish Airspace

The Danish Defense Ministry reported that Russian planes have violated national airspace two times in one day.

Denmark’s defense minister, Trine Bramsen said that the intrusion was a rare incident but unacceptable.

“(It is) completely unacceptable that Russian planes violate Danish airspace, and even twice in one day. Looks like deliberate action,” said Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod.

Russia has not yet made a statement on the incident while Kofod said he already requested a meeting with the Russian ambassador.

There are no details yet on what kind of aircraft entered Danish airspace.
