RF64525, a Tu-204-200 equipped with tools for the Open Skies Treaty, is currently in orbit near the border with #Ukraine. https://t.co/pxvA4LHS3U

They're flying over the same spot they've been using for months, they're in the middle of certifying their digital electro-optical sensor, the same model that's on their current certified Tu-154.
