f18Avioanele Finlandei nu au putut raspunde provocarilor lansate de Rusia in urma cu aproape doua saptamani, atunci cand spatiul aerian al statului baltic a fost violat de doua ori.

Informatia a fost confirmata chiar de presedintele Finlandei, Sauli Niinisto.

Potrivit acestuia, doua avioane rusesti au violat spatiul aerian finlandez in data de 20 mai fara ca propriile aparate de vanatoare sa poata fi ridicate pentru interceptie. Abia la o a treia tentativa a rusilor o celula de F-18 a decolat de la baza din Karelia si a stopat agresiunea rusa.

Presedintele Finlandei a recunosct mai mult sau mai putin voalat ca avioanele F-18 nu sunt tocmai gata de zbor si ca serviciul de lupta – politie aeriana se executa aproximativ. Asta pentru ca ministerul Apararii nu are fonduri suficiente pentru a asigura lucrarile de mentenanta.

Astfel, F-18 finlandeze au putut decola la, atentie, patru ore dupa ce primul avion rusesc a violat spatiul aerian national.

“The resources of the Defence Forces are evidently scarce,” Niinistö commented.

Apparently the “finnsh jets were not on standby due to attempts to reduce the backlog of overtime and were only able to respond to the violations four hours after the detection”, as finnish media reported.

A few hours after the intrusions, also a third Russian aircraft was detected approaching the southern coast of Finland, but it was intercepted by two jets deployed by the Karelia Air Command, Helsinki Times says.
