Summary of Disinformation

NATO F-16 tried to provoke the Russian Defense minister’s plane, which is an hostile signal.


NATO had tracked three Russian aircrafts over the Baltic on Wednesday, including two fighter jets which it said did not respond to air traffic control or requests to identify themselves. "As is standard practice whenever unknown aircraft approach NATO air space, NATO and national air forces took to the sky to monitor these flights," a NATO official said."When NATO aircraft intercept a plane they identify it visually, maintaining a safe distance at all times. Once complete, NATO jets break away," the official said. The alliance said it had no information about who was on board the planes. http://reut.rs/2rYIt2b
