Poland refused passage for Shoigu’s plane


Poland has not allowed a plane carrying Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu cross its airspace, who was on his way back from Slovakia.

After the Russian Tu-154 took off from Banska-Bystritsa, pilots of the plane were said from land that Poland denied its airspace for passage of Russian Defense Minister, RIA Novosti was told by one of the crew.

As a result, the plane had to make a sharp U-turn and landed in Bratislava an hour later.

Now talks on this instance are underway.
