A Russian fighter jet was scrambled on Tuesday to accompany two US strategic bombers over the Baltic Sea, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Russian airspace control detected two targets approaching the Russian state border over the Baltic Sea and a Su-27 fighter took off in response, reports Xinhua citing a statement.

After identifying the objects as two US B-1B strategic bombers, the Russian crew escorted the foreign planes until they flew away from the Russian border, the statement said.
