At 9:51 a.m. on Tuesday a Russian Antonov An-26 aircraft violated Estonian airspace. The Russian air force plane entered Estonian territory in the area of Vaindloo island off the coast of Lääne-Viru County.

The aircraft spent less than a minute in Estonian airspace, the Estonian Defence Forces reported.

The plane’s transponder was active, and a flight plan had been submitted according to which the plane was supposed to remain in international airspace.

At the time it entered Estonian territory, the Russian aircraft wasn’t in contact with Estonian air traffic control.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Russian ambassador to Estonia and forwarded a note of protest of the government to him.
