Russian planes violate the airspace, Sweden reacts harshly, a very serious incident

Four Russian warplanes violated Swedish airspace on Wednesday, according to a statement from the Swedish Armed Forces, CNN reports. 

Two Russian Su-27s and two Su-24s violated Swedish airspace east of the island of Gotland, across the sea. The Swedish Air Force conducted an "out of emergency standby" operation using its Jas 39 Gripen fighter jets.

"We were on the ground to secure Sweden's territorial integrity and borders," said Air Force Chief Carl-Johan Edström. "We have full control of the situation."

Sweden banned Russian aircraft from its airspace on Monday, February 28.

"In light of the current situation, we take the incident very seriously. It is an unprofessional and irresponsible action on the part of Russia," said Edström.
