According to a statement from the Russian Ministry of Defense, a Russian Su-27 fighter escorted a French spy plane approaching the Russian border over the Baltic Sea.

“The crew of the Russian fighter jet recognized the air target as an Atlantic-2 reconnaissance aircraft of the French Air Force and escorted it over the Baltic Sea,” the statement said.

In order to identify the air target and to prevent the violation of the state borders of the Russian Federation, a Su-27 fighter jet was lifted by the Baltic naval air and air defence forces.

Russia has stated that there was no violation of Russia’s state borders, adding that the flight of the Russian fighter was carried out in strict compliance with international regulations.
