In the relations between Ukraine and the EU there is already the beginning of a crisis, which was visible in the recent Ukraine-EU summit.
A high-ranking source close to the Kremlin claims that the Russian authorities really feared that the Polish Air Force could shoot down the plane with the Russian president on his way to the G20 Hamburg summit.
No evidence given. President Putin's plane has flown over eastern NATO states on a number of recent occasions. It was not clear why this time his jet took a longer route, which also avoided crossing the Baltic states - which, like Poland, are members of NATO and the European Union. There is no logical explanation or evidence to the claim that the flight would have been threatened by any NATO or EU member. reut.rs/2vwqyNp,
