It is impossible that someone repeated German Mathias Rust’s flight today, said chief of the anti-aircraft missile troops, Major-General Sergey Babakov.

On May 28, 1987, when the USSR was celebrating the Border Guards’ Day, American-made sport aircraft “Cessna 172” violated the Soviet air space and landed in Moscow near Red Square at Vasilyevsky Spusk. Soon after that, the pilot was arrested.
