UK denies Moscow claims RAF jet entered Russian airspace

The UK has denied a RAF jet entered Russian airspace in the Arctic Circle, after the Kremlin accused Britain of a "deliberate provocation".

สล็อตฝากวอเลท Whether we're betting through online gambling sites or online casinos, it's a business, so doing business is risky that there's a chance that we'll make a profit.

The flight by a RC-135 Rivet Joint was part of "routine operation" on Monday, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said.

A Russian fighter made an "unsafe close pass" of the surveillance aircraft over international waters, it added.

Moscow said it had "been tasked with preventing the violation of Russian Federation airspace".

The MoD denied claims the Royal Air Force (RAF) plane had violated the Russian border in the Arctic Circle, adding that "at no time" did the aircraft enter Russia's airspace.

It said the RC-135, based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire, was communicating with Russian civilian air traffic control and its crew operated in a "safe and professional manner" during the flight, which took it over the Norwegian and Barents seas in the Arctic Circle.

The RAF jet later returned safely to its base in the UK after the flight.

On Monday, Russia said the UK had submitted a flight plan application "to fly along a route including over Russian Federation territory" near Cape Svyatoy Nos.

The Kremlin said it considers "this action to be a deliberate provocation" and its air force has "been tasked with preventing the violation of Russian Federation airspace".
