Russia aircrafts of new NATO allies near its borders?

Former commander of Russian Air Force, general Anatoly Kornukov calls Russian authorities to be tough in dealing with NATO aircrafts which would appear near Russian borders after Baltic countries’ joining the alliance.
NATO gained seven new allies new Russian borders. ”Because of NATO expanding we should apply tough policy, including tough measures to NATO aircrafts. If an aircraft violated the state border, it must be shoot down. International law allows this”, said general Kornukov who is currently Co-Chairman of the Expert Council on the Issues of Air and Space Defense, Interfax reported.

”To begin with, the Baltic states should be reminded that good-neighbor relations have nothing to do with military aircrafts barraging along the neighboring country borders. They are flying not just for pleasure, they are likely to be well-armed”.

Meanwhile, Russian State Duma scheduled special meeting of the Security Council of Russia with the situation on Russian borders after the NATO expansion on the agenda, said Head of  Duma Committee on International Relations Konstanin Kosachev.

He said that NATO had started “undertaking unfriendly step towards Russia”.

”If the actions of this sort continue, and deployment of big number of NATO troops takes place near Russian borders, Russia should consider the opportunity of taking the measures of response to preserve the current balance of force in the region”, Mr. Kosachev said.
