A Su-27 drove NATO’s F-16 away from the Russian defense minister’s plane in the Baltic airspace

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) F-16 supersonic multirole fighter attempted to get close to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu’s plane over neutral Baltic waters but was chased away by a Russian jet, a Sputnik correspondent reported Wednesday.

Shoigu was en route to the westernmost Russian city of Kaliningrad when the F-16 attempted to make an approach.
