Finland Accuses Russia Of Violating Its Air Space

BBC: Finland jets monitor Russian fighters on border flights

Finland's Defence Ministry says it has scrambled jets twice in the past 24 hours to monitor suspected airspace violations by Russian fighters.

A Russian Su-27 fighter was detected in the Gulf of Finland south of Porvoo late on Thursday, the ministry said.

The Russian military said there was no violation of Finnish airspace.
