The propaganda video about the brave NATO pilots is assembled from two plots. The first of them shows a combat alarm and the departure of two fighters to escort Russian aircraft in the Baltic sky at the end of November. The second story describes the December 13 event, which we wrote about above.
As stated in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, in both cases all interested parties were warned in advance about the flights of the Russian aviation over neutral waters. American aircraft approached a pair of Su-30SM and after a short visual contact retired.
