Russian Su-27 dangerously approached American RC-135 over Baltic Sea


A Russian fighter Su-27 dangerously approached a reconnaissance plane RC-135 of the US Air Force over the Baltic Sea.

It was reported by CNN referring to the Pentagon.

It was reported that a Russian Su-27 made a “barrel” around the US aircraft flying in international airspace. According to the channel, it was at a distance of 30 meters.

The source of the channel in the military called the maneuver unsafe, and demanded an explanation from the Russian side.

The head of the Duma Committee on Defense Vladimir Komoedov rejected allegations about dangerous maneuvers of the Russian plane.

“This was not the peak of the attack, and not an attack imitation at all, so it’s okay. This is not a dangerous maneuver,” – he said.
