The sky over St. Petersburg was closed due to an unidentified object

Pulkovo airport in St. Petersburg temporarily did not receive or send planes. Telegram channels without citing sources reported that an “unidentified object” was found in the airspace.

Baza and 112 telegram channels were the first to report the closure of airspace over St. Petersburg. According to Baza, the Carpet Plan was in force in the territory – it is introduced when illegally crossing the border, as well as when unidentified objects appear in the airspace. “112” argued that with such a plan, all planes in the air, except for military and rescue planes, would have to land.

Baza also reported that fighter jets had been blown up and airspace had been closed for 200 kilometers. According to 112, two fighters, Su-35 and MiG-31, flew through the air.

Data from the Flightradar24 service showed that there were really no planes over St. Petersburg, and those flying towards it turned around. In particular, this was done by a flying board from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

At 12:00 Moscow time, the Baza and 112 telegram channels and RIA Novosti reported, citing sources, that the Carpet plan had been canceled and the skies over St. Petersburg had begun to open.
