A Russian state-owned Tupolev TU-154 aircraft is suspected to have violated the Finnish airspace on Monday morning, said a government press release.

The Finnish Border Guard detected that the suspected violation took place at 7.00 am in the Gulf of Finland south of Porvoo.

The Finnish Border Guard will investigate into the matter, the press release added.

Earlier, in August 1, two Spanish F18 fighters allegedly violated Finnish air space.

The violation took place at 9.00 am local time (06 GMT) in south of Upinniemi, a military base area in southern Finland.

The Spanish aircraft were on a NATO duty mission
