KYIV NOTIFIES BERLIN OVER ILLEGAL FLIGHT. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has sent a message to Germany's Embassy in Kyiv saying the three German citizens detained in Dnipropetrovsk earlier this week after their flight over Ukraine (see "RFE/RL Newsline," 19 August 2003) entered Ukrainian airspace without permission and threatened the safety of other flights, Interfax reported. The message calls on Germany to take measures that will prevent such incidents in the future. The Ukrainian Security Service's regional branch in Dnipropetrovsk has opened a criminal case against the three Germans, who are charged with violating rules that govern international flight. JM
