Watch a NATO F-16 fighter being directed away from the Russian defense minister's plane in Baltic airspace by a Su-27 jet on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, a Sputnik correspondent reported that the NATO aircraft attempted to get close to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu's plane over neutral Baltic waters but was chased away by the Su-27.

Shoigu was en route to the westernmost Russian city of Kaliningrad when the F-16 attempted to make an approach.
