A Russian military officer told a South Korean defense official on Tuesday that the Russian military aircraft, which South Korea fired warning shots at for entering South Korean airspace, appeared to have "entered an area that was not planned due to device malfunction", Yoon Do-han, a senior official in the South Korean presidential office, said.
