According to a Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RE/RFL) report, Russian news agency TASS said that a flight on Tuesday from the Kaliningrad exclave to Moscow, carrying defense minister Sergey Shoygu, was approached by a NATO McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, in global airspace. The Sukhoi Su-27s were escorting Shoigu's aircraft over the worldwide waters of Baltic Sea when the Spanish Air Force EF-18A came too close to the Defense Minister's plane. "Once identification of the aircraft had taken place, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation jets returned to base", the spokesman said, adding that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation had no information as to who was on board.

It said a Spanish F-18 jet based in Lithuania had tried to approach Shoigu's plane, prompting one of two Russian SU-27 fighter jets accompanying him to see it off.

In this case the aircraft dispatched to intercept and shadow the aircraft is a Spanish Air Force EF-18, one of the 5 jets now deployed to Siauliai Air Base, Lithuania, for BAP mission.

A 41-second-long video shot from inside Shoigu's aircraft shows the Su-27 escorting the plane.

Media Landscape Shrinks as CBS and Viacom Merge
The breadth and depth of the combined company's reach across both traditional and new platforms - including 22% of U.S. Shari Redstone had been a big backer of re-combining the companies in the face of tough competition.

Shoigu had flown to Kaliningrad to attend a ceremony marking the start of construction of a new military academy.

Kaliningrad's location, cut off from the Russian "mainland" and sandwiched between two European Union member states, Lithuania and Poland, means that flights to and from the exclave often come close to the coastline of Lithuania in particular.

The F/A-18 Hornet by McDonnell Douglas is a multirole fighter which has been extensively used by the U.S. and many of its allies throughout the years.
