The ministry said three helicopters bearing the markings of the Russian armed forces had violated Ukrainian airspace several times on July 3.
"The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine sent a note to the Russian side protesting over grave, systematic violations of Ukrainian airspace by the Russian side," said a statement on the ministry's website.
