« A French state plane is suspected of violating Finnish airspace in the Gulf of Finland “, indicates the Finnish Ministry of Defense in a communicated published on Tuesday (7 September) in the afternoon. The facts occurred on Tuesday morning.

An ongoing investigation

All cases are characterized and classified as 'possible' violations until the Finnish border guards have investigated and concluded that it is a real violation. This investigation generally takes one to two days, we tell B2.


The Ministry of Defense publicly reports all possible territorial violations. Typically, this happens one to five times a year. This year, three territorial violations have taken place in Finland: two by Sweden and one by France. In 2020, two were from Sweden and one from Germany.
