Russian warship spotted near Latvian border today

RIGA, April 15 (LETA) - A military ship of the Russian Navy was spotted near the Latvian border today, the National Armed Forces said.

A Vishnya-class Russian warship was detected in Latvia's exclusive economic zone eight nautical miles from the Latvian territorial waters.

Earlier this week, on April 12, NATO planes policing Baltic airspace detected a Su-27 Russian military airplane flying above the Baltic Sea close to the Latvian territorial waters.

As reported, in recent years Russian military aircraft and vessels have often been spotted near the Latvian borders.
