Putin’s presidential plane is chased across Switzerland by fighter jets amid rising fears of a new cold war threat
A Russian presidential plane carrying journalists was chased across Swiss skies by fighter planes amid mounting tensions between Vladimir Putin and the rest of Europe.
One of the passengers on board the Russian plane, which was headed to Peru, took a video showing the military jet flying by their side, clearly carrying Swiss markings.
Andrey Kolesnikov, editor-in-chief of the magazine Russian Pioneer, wrote on Facebook: ‘We’re flying above Switzerland. At some point, the plane with the delegation and the journalists is being blocked from three sides by three fighter jets.’
