Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that a Sukhoi-Su-27 aircraft intercepted two US and Swedish reconnaissance jets over the Baltic Sea، where NATO is carrying out a sea-borne exercise called the Baltops-2019.

"On June 10، Russian aerial surveillance over neutral waters in the Baltic Sea spotted two aerial targets approaching the Russian state border،" the ministry said in a statement.

The Su-27 aircraft belonged to the Baltic Air Defense Force and was quick to intercept the two targets. The Russian fighter identified the aircraft as RC-135 and the Swedish Gulfstream، the ministry said.

The ministry said the Russian fighter jet had accompanied them to prevent them from "penetrating the borders of the Russian state."
