MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Su-27 military planes conducting training flights on Oct. 6-7 flew over the neutral waters in the Gulf of Finland and did not deviate from their course, Russian agencies quoted Russia's Defence Ministry as saying on Friday.

Finland said earlier on Friday it suspect the planes of violating its airspace.
