British spy plane applied to fly over Russia - Moscow

Russian Ministry of Defence said on Tuesday that the British spy plane RC-135 applied to enter Russian airspace, referring to such a move as a ''deliberate provocation.'' The news comes a day after the ministry noted it had successfully kicked out one British RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft from its airspace.

Russian aerospace has been given an order to prevent any further violation of its airspace, Defence Ministry stated, warning that possible repercussions will be the sole responsibility of the United Kingdom.
