An unmanned aircraft has been spotted in Western Kazakhstan. It came from Uzbekistan and violated Kazakhstan's airspace, KTK TV reports.
Personnel of border detachment dislocated near Beineu village of Mangystau oblast noticed the unmanned aircraft on February 16. The drone crossed the state border and continued into the territory of Kazakhstan. It spent about 15 minutes in Kazakhstan's airspace flying over two frontier posts, after that it turned around, went back and disappeared in Uzbekistan's airspace.
The drone that supposedly belongs to the neighboring Republic of Uzbekistan remained undetected by Kazakhstan's Air Defenses because it was flying very low. Representatives of Air Defense Forces and Intelligence Departments of Kazakhstan's Defense Ministry are already dealing with the incident. It is yet unknown if a note of protest is going to be sent to Uznekistan in relation with the incident.
