“In the airspace over the open waters of the Black Sea, threats to the flights of civil aircraft have been prevented.

The increased intensity of NATO aircraft flights near the borders of the Russian Federation, including over the Black Sea, creates the risk of dangerous incidents in relation to civil aircraft, ”RIA Novosti quotes a representative of the Federal Air Transport Agency.

She noted that "the Russian aviation authorities will initiate the direction of the protest through diplomatic channels."

According to her, on December 3, the plane of the Tel Aviv-Moscow flight changed echelon due to the NATO reconnaissance plane;

the NATO board crossed the route established for civilian ships, did not respond to requests from air traffic services.

Earlier, the press service of the Russian airline "Aeroflot" reported that the plane, following the flight Tel Aviv - Moscow, changed the echelon at the direction of the dispatcher, as the trajectory crossed the other side.
