According to Colonel Anders Persson, the Russian fighter jet pilot behaved aggressively, the outlet states.
“The Foreign Ministry views this incident as serious. The Russian plane acted in an improper and unprofessional manner in a way that jeopardized flight safety,” Qudhaib, the Press Secretary of the Swedish Foreign Minister, stated.
The incident occurred last Tuesday when a Swedish airplane carried out its mission over the Baltic Sea.
“The Swedish aircraft was in international air space between Gotland and the Baltics when a Russian SU-27 fighter jet took off from Kaliningrad and approached the Swedish plane,” reads the message.
