Russian state media showed a video of a mid-air confrontation over the Baltic Sea, where a Russian Su-27 fighter chased away a NATO F-18 that was moving toward a passenger plane.
NATO moved against the passenger aircraft when it was over the Baltic Sea after leaving Kaliningrad and heading toward Moscow. The plane contained Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shogu. The F-18 was from Spain, but operating out of Lithuania.
This is the second time a NATO fighter moved after a plane Shogu was on. Fortunately for Shogu, Russia keeps fighters in the area to protect high-ranking officials’ flights, and the Su-27 got into the area near the NATO plane, forcing it off.
Shogu was in Kaliningrad to attend a ceremony for the construction of a new military academy. The Russian exclave of Kaliingrad borders Lithuania and Poland, and NATO tends to militarize the area around it.

Nato attempts harassment of Russia, intended, but Russia stands firm. shows Nato plane it’s loaded underbelly, and NATO retreats. Nato is asking for trouble.
I’m pretty sure “Asking for Trouble” is sewed into the back of their bomber jackets.
If the Russians did that to a plane containing Pompeo, the story would be portrayed all over the war-mongering media as a brazen threat to the peace of the world!
