Finland expresses regret after its warship entered Russian territorial waters

Finland has expressed regret after its warship by mistake entered the Russian territorial waters, reports the Finnish Navy.

The incident happened on August 1 in the Eastern part of the Gulf of Finland. The Hämeenmaa gunboat entered Russian waters at about 600 m, realized the mistake, immediately left the territory and reported the incident. After that, Helsinki contacted the Russian authorities and expressed regret.

In September 2018, the Finnish authorities, in turn, suspected a Russian ship of violation of Finnish border. The ship was crossing Finnish border in the area of the Archipelago Sea.
