Russian inspectors set for observation flight over Turkey

A group of Russian military inspectors will carry out this week an observation flight over the territory of Turkey within the frames of the international Open Skies Treaty, the chief of the ministry’s national Nuclear Risk Reduction Center, Sergey Ryzhkov, said.

"The observation flight over Turkey will be carried out between February 27 and March 3 from the Eskisehir airport," TASS cited him as saying.

"The Russian surveillance aircraft will be strictly following an earlier approved route and Turkish specialists on board of the plane will be supervising the use of the surveillance equipment and observation of the Treaty provisions," Ryzhkov added.

It will be Russia’s third observation flight since the beginning of this year within the frames of the Open Skies agreement.
