Yuri Baluyevsky said Friday the incident with Russian pilot Valery Troyanov is over
Russian army chief of staff Gen Yuri Baluyevsky said Friday the incident with Russian pilot Valery Troyanov, whose Su-27 fighter had crashed in Lithuania, is over. "The conclusion drawn by the official commission of the Lithuanian defense ministry confirms that the violation of the air space was unintentional; and, as I see it, the incident is over," said Baluyevsky who supervises the Baltika-2005 command-and-staff exercise in the Kaliningrad region. "Troyanov did everything possible in this situation," he added. The General said he is planning to meet with Troyanov later in the day. The pilot, released by Lithuanian authorities, arrived in the town of Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad region, on Thursday. Troyanov was piloting a Su-27 fighter en route from the Leningrad region to Kaliningrad on September 15. The plane's navigation equipment failed and the pilot, after using up the fuel, ejected. The plane fell in Lithuania. There were no human casualties. On Thursday, the Lithuanian Prosecutor General's Office dropped proceedings against Troyanov and let him go home
