The Ministry of Defense offered to shoot down passenger aircraft with a real threat.

Shoot down or not shoot down?

To prevent terrorist attacks, environmental disasters and air attacks on strategic facilities, the military proposes to give them the right to shoot down not only military aircraft, but also civilian ones. To this end, the Ministry of Defense proposes making changes to the government decree "On the procedure for the use of weapons and military equipment while protecting the Russian Federation state border in airspace". By the way, this document was prepared in 1994 and over time obviously requires corrective action.
The current resolution describes in detail how Russian military personnel should act in relation to military aircraft that are trapped in our airspace. "Weapons and military equipment to prevent violations of the state border of the Russian Federation in airspace are used against military, including armed military transport aircraft of violators," the resolution says.

As for passenger airplanes, the document states that in the event of non-response to radio commands or visual signals or refusing to obey them without explaining the reasons for such a refusal, weapons and military equipment are used "in the presence of information about the absence of passengers on board the aircraft that violates the passengers" .
The new version of the document, which the Ministry of Defense has published for public comment, the wording is tightened. "If an intruder refuses to perform radio commands (visual signals) to land (exit airspace of Russia) or refuse to obey them without explanation and if there is a real risk of death or environmental catastrophe, including the emergence of an immediate threat air attack on the most important objects of the Russian Federation, it is used to defeat weapons and military equipment duty forces, "- said in a draft government decree.

The following is an explanation that the weapons and military equipment of the duty forces for defeat do not apply "in the absence of a real danger of death and (or) the onset of an environmental catastrophe."

The document also specifies the procedure for the use of weapons for hijacked Russian aircraft. They can be destroyed only in the absence of hostages on board. “When a violation of the state’s border is threatened or disturbed by Russian hijacked aircrafts, the duty personnel require these vessels to land at the airfields indicated by them and (or) force them to land. If the intruder refuses to carry out radio commands (visual signals) to the landing and, if there is information about the absence of hostages on board, it is used to defeat weapons and military equipment of duty forces, ”the draft resolution says.

In addition, the document describes in detail exactly what forces and means of the military are assigned to prevent air attacks. "The direct solution of tasks for the protection of the state border in the airspace of the Russian Federation and the identification of aircraft violating the rules of its crossing is carried out within the framework of combat duty for air defense by duty forces from the Aerospace Forces, associations, formations and military units of military districts, Northern of the fleet. Duty forces include radio engineering (radar) forces and facilities a, carrying out reconnaissance and control of the airspace of the Russian Federation, airplanes (helicopters) and anti-aircraft missile (rocket and artillery, artillery) forces and means capable of fighting against the means of aerospace attack, as well as their control bodies, " in the draft government decree.
The conditions under which the military should raise air defense forces in alarm are also specified. According to the current decree, the military begin to act only after the vessel violates the air border of Russia. The new version of these criteria are clarified. "When an unidentified aircraft is detected, approaching from the adjacent side to the state border at a distance of 50 km (100 km for the Eastern Military District) and continuing to fly towards the state border or if it is suddenly detected at a 150-kilometer border (maritime a) on the territory of the Russian Federation of an unidentified aircraft are alert No. 1 on duty, airplanes on duty (helicopters) take to the air, measures are being taken to establish radio communication with the crew of this aircraft “Through the air traffic service agencies (flight control) of the Unified Air Traffic Management System of the Russian Federation and the authorities on duty in the direction of its flight, as well as collecting signs for the classification of the aircraft”, the document notes.

If the draft resolution proposed by the Ministry of Defense is approved, the old version will lose its force. As for the persons who will decide on the use of weapons in each particular case, according to the draft resolution, the list of officials of the Armed Forces who are given the right to make a decision to open fire on the violating vessels on duty ships will be determined by the Russian Ministry of Defense.
