Poland did not let into its airspace the plane TU-154 of the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who was returning from Slovakia after participating in the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising, reported RIA Novosti.
According to the correspondent of the agency, who is on board of the aircraft, after the take-off from Banska Bystrica pilots received a command from the ground that Poland does not provide its airspace for the cross flight of the aircraft of the Russian Defense Minister.
As a result, the plane turned sharply in the air and landed in an hour at the airport in Bratislava. Negotiations are currently in process concerning the refusal to let the plane of Shoigu to the airspace of Poland.
