Russia’s Sukhoi Su-27 intercepts US Air Force RC-135 and Swedish Air Force jet – Watch

The face-off between the Su-27 and RC-135 along with Gulfstream reconnaissance aircraft, a video of which was posted by the Russian Defence Ministry on its Facebook page, took place over the Baltic Sea where NATO is holding the 47th annual Baltic Operations (BALTOPS 2019) from June 9-21.
