Russian jet chases North Atlantic Treaty Organisation plane away from defense minister's aircraft

Russian jet chases North Atlantic Treaty Organisation plane away from defense minister's aircraft”

Russian state media showed a video of a mid-air confrontation over the Baltic Sea, where a Russian Su-27 fighter chased away a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation F-18 that was moving toward a passenger plane. The Russian jet carrying Shoigu is not the Tu-154 with registration RA-85686 we observed on previous Russia's MOD trips, but a Tu-204, based on the type of winglet exposed in the video.

Shoigu was returning to Moscow from the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad on the Baltic shore, where he attended an worldwide amphibious assault landing troop competition earlier in the day, Zvezda said.

Shoigu's aircraft had been returning to Moscow from the Russian Baltic region of Kaliningrad - which is surrounded by Poland and Lithuania - and was carrying a TASS reporter on board, the agency said. NATO's F-18 tried to approach it over the worldwide waters of the Baltic Sea but Russian fighters forced the jet away.

TASS earlier reported Shoigu was visiting Kaliningrad for a ceremony marking the start of construction on a branch of the Nakhimov Naval School, among other activities.

"NATO's F-18 fighter attempted to approach Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's aircraft, the Russian Su-27 drove it away from Shoigu's aircraft over the Baltic Sea", the TV channel said.

"NATO has no information as to who was on board", the latter added.

However, the Spanish Air Force has not yet independently spoken on the issue although its fighters take part in NATO's Baltic Air Policing missions. Then please consider donating today to ensure that Eurasia Review can continue to be able to provide similar content.
