According to a report by CNN, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that Russian jets had intercepted US and Swedish air forces over the Baltic Sea on Monday, the latest in a series of encounters between the US and Russian militaries at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries. The Russian government statement said one of its Su-27 fighters approached the jets "at a safe distance and identified them as a US Air Force RC-135 and a Swedish Air Force Gulfstream reconnaissance aircraft." A US military official reportedly confirmed the encounter, and said it was safe and professional.
