Interceptan un F-18 de la OTAN que se acercó a avión ministro de Defensa ruso

Moscú.- Cazas rusos Su-27 interceptaron hoy a un F-18 de la OTAN que se intentó acercar al avión donde viajaba el ministro del Defensa ruso, Serguéi Shoigú, cuando éste sobrevolaba aguas neutrales del mar Báltico.

En el vídeo que divulgó el canal del ministerio de Defensa ruso, “Zvezdá” (Estrella), se ve cómo los cazas rusos obligan al F-18 a alejarse del avión de Shoigú que volaba del enclave ruso de Kaliningrado a Moscú.

En las imágenes se puede distinguir aparentemente la insignia española cuando el avión de la OTAN realiza la maniobra de alejamiento.

RAF Typhoons were scrambled on Tuesday 17 June 2014 to intercept multiple Russian aircraft as part of NATO’s ongoing mission to police Baltic airspace.
The Typhoon aircraft, from 3 (Fighter) Squadron, were launched after four separate groups of aircraft were detected by NATO air defences in international airspace near to the Baltic States.
Once airborne, the British jets identified the aircraft as a Russian Tupolev Tu22 ‘Backfire’ bomber, four Sukhoi Su27 ‘Flanker’ fighters, one Beriev A50 ‘Mainstay’ early warning aircraft and an Antonov An26 ‘Curl’ transport aircraft who appeared to be carrying out a variety of routine training. The Russian aircraft were monitored by the RAF Typhoons and escorted on their way.
The Typhoon pilots involved in the operation were Flight Lieutenant (Flt Lt) Mark Long of 29 (Reserve) Squadron (the Typhoon operational training unit) and a French Air Force exchange pilot Commandant Marc-antoine Gerrard who is currently attached to 1(Fighter) Squadron.

“Mira, ese es el número de casco”, dice una voz en ruso en el vídeo, de menos de medio minuto de duración.

En junio de 2017 otro caza de la Alianza Atlántica ya intentó acercarse peligrosamente al avión de Shoigú sobre las aguas del Báltico, aunque en aquella ocasión era un F-16 de las Fuerzas Aéreas polacas, según informa la agencia Interfax.

Shoigú ha advertido en el pasado sobre los “riesgos” del aumento de los vuelos de los aviones de guerra aliados cerca de las fronteras rusas y del peligro de “provocaciones e incidentes militares”.(EFE).
