Finland provides no evidence to prove Russia’s role in ‘GPS disruption’ during NATO drills

Helsinki has provided no evidence proving that the jamming source which caused a GPS failure during NATO’s Trident Juncture exercise was located in Russia, the Russian embassy in Finland said in a Monday statement following a meeting between Russian Ambassador to Finland Pavel Kuznetsov and the Finnish Foreign Ministry’s Permanent State Secretary Matti Anttonen. According to the statement, the ambassador "stressed that aviation safety was as important for Russia as it was for Finland." He also pointed out that "we received no information proving that the jamming source was located in Russia. In this regard, we believe that a thorough expert dialogue, involving the relevant agencies from the countries of the region, is necessary for the consideration of such situations," the embassy said. "Finland agreed it was reasonable to study the possibility of enhancing the efficiency of inter-agency information exchange concerning the navigation situation in connection to civil flights and take timely steps in response to its possible changes," the statement added.
