The Estonian Foreign Ministry said it summoned Russia's ambassador over the incident.

On March 12, Estonia said a Russian military Il-76 cargo plane had violated its airspace near Vaindloo.

Vaindloo is near a corridor where Russian military and cargo planes fly to get from the St. Petersburg area to the Russian Baltic Sea enclave of Kaliningrad.
