The Russian jet breached South Korean airspace twice prompting the Air Force to scramble fighter jets and fire warning shots, an official at the Joint Chiefs of Staff told AFP.
It was the first time a Russian plane has violated South Korean airspace, the official said, adding that the military was investigating.
