American B-52 bomber was flying over international waters of the Baltic Sea. Russia’s air space control means identified it far away from the border and put it under observation.

Two Sukhoi-27 jets of the air defence forces were ordered to identify and escort the aircraft. After the strategic bomber B-52H changed course to move away from the Russian state border the jets returned to base, the Defense Ministry’s statement says.

The Defense Ministry has uploaded a video of the incident to its Facebook page.
