Russian Su-27 “clamped” NATO fighter in the sky over the Baltic

On April 24, 2020, Russian naval aviation made scheduled flights over the international (neutral) waters of the Baltic Sea and revealed an air target flying to the Russian border. After that, a pair of Russian multi-purpose all-weather supersonic Su-27 heavy fighters, which provided cover in the area of ​​the exercises, went to intercept the target.

This was reported in the press service of the Western Military District.

It is noted that the Su-27 identified the target as a F-16 fighter of the Belgian Air Force. After that, the Russians took the “guest” from NATO for escort. The published footage shows how the VKS fighters “jammed” the enemy’s aircraft from two sides, creating an extremely uncomfortable situation for him.

Flights of Russian aircraft were carried out in strict accordance with international airspace use regulations

- emphasized in the press service.

We remind you that planes and drones of NATO countries and allies of this “peace-loving” bloc regularly appear at the air borders of Russia. The Russian Defense Ministry has repeatedly called on the “partners” to stop such intelligence operations, but they refuse to do so. At the same time, a video of the above “meeting” of the Su-27 pair with the F-16 in the sky over the Baltic has already appeared on the Web.

Recently it was reported that the pilot of the Russian supersonic high-altitude all-weather fighter-interceptor MiG-31, while escorting the Tu-95MS turboprop strategic bomber, talked gestures with the pilot of an F-16 fighter of one of the NATO countries. And before that, in Lithuania the Belgian Air Force F-16 fighter was raised by alarm. It was aimed at intercepting a pair of Russian tactical front-line bombers Su-24, which were heading to the destroyer "Donald Cook" (USS Donald Cook) US Navy in the Baltic Sea.

    What a nightmare! 2 heavy Su, flying peacefully somewhere off the neutral shores in the area of ​​the exercises, were suddenly attacked by a lone lung Ф secretly making their way to the borders of the Russian Federation along the Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, Germany, and for some reason past the exercises!

    Do not respect at all! They don’t even want to look at the teachings!

    The response of our military is correct. NATO members, of course, want to be masters and fly with impunity where and how they want. But the Baltic is not Syria, but NATO is not Israel - the answer will arrive!

    Actually, there is a NATO country all around, but they have to fly ... or offer to fly only to the Dry Islands alone over the sea ...
