Norway announced the military intervention of Russian Federation in the Global Positioning System

Norway announced the military intervention of Russian Federation in the Global Positioning System

According to the Prime Minister of Finland Juha Sipila, it is not excluded that Russian Federation interfered in the work of navigation services, because the country has all the necessary capabilities for this. "It's possible that Russian Federation was the cause of the disturbance, it's known to have such capabilities". "Russian Federation is known to possess such capabilities", Sipila told public broadcaster Yle on Sunday. "As a rule, these accusations are baseless", Peskov said. The NATO-organized exercise has 29 countries participating in the event, which began last month and runs to November 23.

The alliance's largest such exercise since the end of the Cold War, it ran in and around Norway from October 25 to November 7.

In connection with the incident air navigation services of both countries had issued warnings about the loss of Global Positioning System signals for pilots.

Pilots with the Norwegian airline Wideroe said that they lost GPS signals when flying to airports in northern Norway and Finland, forcing them to switch to alternative navigation systems.

"There are no security risks, we have good routines, and this is not the first time we have experienced loss of signals", a Wideroe spokeswoman told the Barents Observer website.

"It's a message to all parties participating in the military exercise", he explained.

Finnish parliamentarians lined up on Friday to call for a robust response to the signal jamming, with the defence committee chair, Ilkka Kanerva telling Yle that the effect on civil aviation could have been "catastrophic".

Sipila's comment came four days after North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces ended their two-week Trident Juncture exercise.

Russian Federation has said it has "no information" about the allegation, which has not been made by any of the other 31 countries that had forces taking part in the war games - military exercises used to test tactics and equipment.
