According to Yonhap news agency reported on the 20th, South Korean military officials said on the 20th that six Russian military aircraft entered the South Korea Air Defense Identification Zone on August 19, and the South Korean Air Force sent out fighters to drive them away. Earlier in the day, two Russian tu-95ms strategic bombers and four other military aircraft entered the South Korean Air Defense Identification Zone near Dokdo (known in Japan as “Takeshima”) without prior notice, according to South Korean military officials. The Russian military aircraft stayed here for about 20 minutes before entering the Japan Air Defense Identification Zone. However, Russian military aircraft did not violate South Korea’s airspace. < / P > < p > the officials added that after the discovery of the first Russian military aircraft entering the ADIZ, the South Korean Air Force urgently dispatched fighters, including the f-15k and kf-16, and took “appropriate measures” to drive them away. < / P > < p > South Korean military officials said that in 2019 alone, Russian warplanes flew into the air defense identification zone of South Korea at least 20 times. In July last year, a Russian A-50 early warning aircraft flew into the airspace of Dokdo twice, causing the South Korean Air Force to carry out warning fire and fired hundreds of shells. In order to prevent such incidents, South Korea and Russia have been promoting the establishment of a military hotline between the air forces of the two countries to exchange flight information, the Joint Chiefs of staff of South Korea said. The two sides began to discuss this issue in 2004 and concluded the consultation on the draft memorandum of understanding in November last year. According to Yonhap, the air defense identification zone is not airspace and is not subject to international law. However, according to international practice, foreign fighters should give advance notice before approaching the ADIZ to prevent accidental conflict. < / P > < p > earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that two Russian tu-95ms strategic bombers carried out routine flights over the sea of Japan, the East China Sea and the Northwest Pacific Ocean for about seven hours. At some stages of the flight, Russian bombers were followed by Japanese Air Self Defense Force fighters and Korean f-15k and f-16k fighters. Russian long-range aviation pilots regularly fly over the Arctic, North Atlantic, black sea, Baltic Sea and Pacific international waters, according to the Russian Ministry of defense. All flights of Russian space force aircraft are carried out in strict accordance with international airspace use rules.
