A Sukhoi Su-27 fighter aircraft was scrambled to intercept US and Swedish reconnaissance planes approaching the Russian border over neutral waters in the Baltic Sea, as shown in footage released on Tuesday.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defence: “Two air targets approaching the Russian national border” were detected on Monday.

After the Russian fighter aircraft approached the “air objects” at a safe distance, they were identified as a US reconnaissance aircraft ‘Boeing RC-135’ and a Swedish recon plane ‘Gulfstream.’

The Su-27 escorted the planes in accordance with international rules for the use of airspace in order to prevent an infringement on Russian territory.
