Lithuanian Minister of National Defence Rasa Jukneviciene is convinced that the Lithuanian air space was not violated when Swedish piloted light aircraft crossed the Lithuanian – Belarusian border in a “teddy bear stunt” on July 4. ”Lithuania’s air space was not violated. There are various small private planes in Lithuania constantly and they also were that day (on July 4), but no violations were determined. If Lithuania will be officially asked for a help with the investigation then the authorities will discuss such possibility under existing laws,” said Jukneviciene in an interview to radio Ziniu Radijas, 9 August, ELTA reported.
Belarusian press informs that Belarus addressed Lithuania and Sweden asking to provide legal assistance in the investigation of violation of the Belorussian border by the airplane on July 4.
