Russia warns UK of reciprocal measures if Aeroflot plane search not explained

Russia warns UK of reciprocal measures if Aeroflot plane search not explained:

If the UK provides no explanation for the search of an Aeroflot plane in London, Moscow will consider the action to have been illegal and will take reciprocal measures against British aircraft, the Russian Transport Ministry said.

The ministry-affiliated aviation security center is to file a request to clarify the reasons behind the search of the Aeroflot plane by UK authorities at Heathrow Airport in London on Friday. “If no explanation is forthcoming, Russia will deem the search illegal and will reserve the right to take similar action against British air carriers,” the statement on the ministry’s website reads.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Quite right too.
If UK plays silly games of inconveniencing, two can play.”
