Copenhagen denounced the violation of Danish airspace by a Russian reconnaissance aircraft and summoned the Russian ambassador for the incident, Danish Foreign Minister Gepe Kofont announced on Sunday.

“The Russian ambassador is called tomorrow Monday at the Foreign Ministry. Another Russian violation of Danish airspace. “This is completely unacceptable and very worrying in the current situation,” Kofont wrote on Twitter.

The incident occurred on Friday night when a Russian reconnaissance plane flew over Danish airspace east of Bornholm (Danish island in the Baltic) before entering Swedish airspace. The Swedish Ministry of Defense announced yesterday that a Russian AN-30 helicopter violated Swedish airspace on Friday night.

Denmark is a member of the North Atlantic Alliance

“This is a reconnaissance aircraft that flew in our airspace for a very short time. “Two Danish F-16s immediately intervened,” a spokesman for the Danish Ministry of Defense, Henry Mortensen, told AFP.

The Russian aircraft then left Danish airspace.

Such incidents are “rare”, Mortensen added.

Unlike Sweden, where NATO membership talks are ongoing, Denmark is a member of the North Atlantic Alliance. p>
