A video shows the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation fighter jet attempting to approach Sergei Shoigu's plane, before being chased away by the Sukhoi pilot.
Russian fighter jets chased away a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation F-18 fighter jet from an airplane carrying the Russian Defense minister Tuesday above neutral waters in the Baltic sea, TASS news agency reported.
A Russian fighter jet acted in an "unsafe manner" during a Tuesday encounter with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation aircraft, with the Russian jet nearly cutting into the flight path of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation plane, forcing the alliance jet to maneuver to avoid a risky situation, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military official tells CNN.
The Russian news agency TASS reported that the Tu-214 was transporting Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu, who was flying to the Russian controlled exclave of Kaliningrad. The plane was also carrying a TASS reporter on board, the news agency said.
Shoigu had flown to Kaliningrad to attend a ceremony marking the start of construction of a new military academy.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concedes the aircraft, a Tu-214, had a "valid flight plan" and had already identified itself. "The two escorting Su-27 flew without a flight plan, their transponders were switched off and they did not talk to air traffic control", a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military official told CNN, adding that the F-18s were scrambled from Šiauliai Air Base in Lithuania "in order to assess the situation".

Lungescu said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation did not know who was aboard the Tu-214.
Lungescu said two jets from NATO's Baltic Air Policing Mission were scrambled to visually identify the aircraft, "as is routine". The plane had Defense Minister Sergey Shogu on board, and the jets were just making sure North Atlantic Treaty Organisation didn't attack the defense minister or try to shoot his plane down.
British jets are based in Estonia as part of a four-month-long North Atlantic Treaty Organisation air policing mission in the Baltic region and recently intercepted Russian aircrafts.
A similar incident occurred in 2017, when a Polish F-16 fighter approached Shoigu's plane over the Baltic Sea and a Russian jet pushed it away.
Russia's military continues to fly increasing close to Estonian airspace, leading to concerns over whether the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally's sovereignty was being violated.
