Drunk Interrupts Flight

A Moscow-New York flight had to execute an unplanned landing in Stockholm on Wednesday after a young Russian man got drunk on cognac and started harassing the other passengers, Prime-Tass reported.

The man, who fell asleep after being detained by police, was to be deported from Sweden, a Stockholm airport spokesman said. He did not identify the man but said he was a Russian citizen aged between 25 and 30, RIA-Novosti reported.

The Delta Air Lines flight stayed in Sweden for about 30 minutes before proceeding on its way, the reports said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
