British Air Force tried to intercept Russian military aircraft

British fighters tried to intercept Russian combat aircraft.

During the scheduled flight of the Russian Air Force aviation, the British military discovered that Russian combat aircraft were approaching the border of the airspace, and therefore fighters were sent to intercept. However, the British Air Force fighters "lingered", and in fact, could not provide interception, since at the moment of approach, the Russian aircraft again went into the depths of international airspace.

At the moment it is known that the British military command tried to make claims, however, in fact, they are unfounded, as there was no violation of the airspace boundary, so the incident can be considered exhausted.
