About this, as RIA Novosti reports, said NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu.

According to her, two planes from the Alliance’s air patrol mission were sent to “visually identify the aircraft, in accordance with normal practice.”

“They watched the planes at a safe distance, but one of the Russian fighters carried out an unsafe maneuver and crossed the flight path of one of the NATO fighters,” Lungescu added.

On August 13, it became known that the F-18 NATO fighter tried to approach the Shoigu during the flight from Kaliningrad to Moscow.

Su-27 did not allow the fighter to come close to the liner, pushing it.

As noted in NATO, the alliance plane approached the Russian side for its identification.
