The warplane was one of three Russian aircraft to enter the Korea Air Defence Identification Zone (KADIZ) early on Tuesday. Two Chinese military aircraft also entered the KADIZ, the defence ministry said in a statement.

There was no immediate public comment from Russian or Chinese officials.

The South Korean government would lodge official complaints about the violations with China and Russia, the defence ministry in Seoul said.

According to the South Korean military, the Russian aircraft violated South Korean airspace over Dokdo - an island that is occupied by South Korea and also claimed by Japan, which calls it Takeshima - just after 9am local time.

“The South Korean military took tactical action including dropping flares and firing a warning shot,” the defence ministry statement said.

The Russian aircraft left South Korean airspace but then entered it again about 20 minutes later, prompting the South Koreans to fire another warning shot.

The ministry said South Korean warplanes “conducted a normal response” to the incursion, without giving further details.

2. I guess warning shots show the South Koreans have figured out they're going it alone.

If the Russian and Chinese backed northerners stream back over the 38th parallel, Shitler will hold back assistance unless a crippling amount is wired to one of his offshore accounts.

Undoubtedly he’ll screw them anyways because that’s what Putin will order him to do.
