"First Russian-Chinese air patrol in Asia-Pacific draws shots from South Korea"
"MOSCOW/SEOUL (Reuters) - Russia carried out what it said was its first long-range joint air patrol in the Asia-Pacific region with China on Tuesday, a mission that triggered hundreds of warning shots, according to South Korean officials, and a strong protest from Japan."
A Russian airborne warning and control system warplane straying into South Korean airspace, evidently in a provocative and malicious manner designed to incite. Disregarding many commands by radio on international frequencies to cease and desist. Scrambled South Korean fighter jets intercepting and having to fire warning shots at the Mainstay [NATO code name] aircraft.

Liancourt Rocks. That what you see is it!
Controversy as with regard to the intercept of the Russian A-50 Mainstay a matter between ROK and Japan. Both claim the duty and responsibility for defense of the "realm" Liancourt Rocks their sole prerogative.
