NATO drones made attempts to cross the border of the Pskov Region of Russia even before the start of the special military operation, Governor of the Region Mikhail Vedernikov said.

“We have never provided extensive coverage to that but there were attempts of military unmanned aerial vehicles and other aircraft to illegally cross the border,” Vedernikov said.

“All such ‘peaceful interaction’ [under border cooperation programs – TASS] was ‘flourishing’ even before the start of the special military operation,” the Governor noted. “Clearly all that has aggravated further at present,” Vedernikov added.

The Pskov Region is bordering on two NATO member-states, Latvia and Estonia.
