Russia claims NATO attempted to fly drones into Russia
The drones were allegedly flown near the Pskov region, which is located along Russia’s border with Estonia and Latvia

NATO drones have attempted to cross the border of the Pskov Region of Russia repeatedly starting prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and continuing to the present day, the governor of the Pskov Region, Mikhail Vedernikov, claimed on Saturday, according to TASS.

“We have never provided extensive coverage to that but there were attempts of military unmanned aerial vehicles and other aircraft to illegally cross the border,” said Vedernikov.

“All such ‘peaceful interaction’ was ‘flourishing’ even before the start of the special military operation,” added the governor. “Clearly all that has aggravated further at present.”

The claim by the Russian governor comes just days after Russia claimed that Ukrainian forces had targeted Sevastopol on the Russian-annexed Crimean peninsula with two drone attacks.

NATO drones attempted crossing Pskov Region’s border before special military operation

NATO drones made attempts to cross the border of the Pskov Region of Russia even before the start of the special military operation, Governor of the Region Mikhail Vedernikov said.

“We have never provided extensive coverage to that but there were attempts of military unmanned aerial vehicles and other aircraft to illegally cross the border,” Vedernikov said.

“All such ‘peaceful interaction’ [under border cooperation programs – TASS] was ‘flourishing’ even before the start of the special military operation,” the Governor noted. “Clearly all that has aggravated further at present,” Vedernikov added.

The Pskov Region is bordering on two NATO member-states, Latvia and Estonia.
