JUST IN: U.S. Navy Releases Video of “Unsafe” Russian Jet Intercept

A Russian jet intercepted an American patrol plane flying in international airspace over the  Black Sea on Monday, coming within 5 feet of the U.S. aircraft, officials said.

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert says Russia violated international law, saying, “The United States notes with the highest level of concern the latest incident of unsafe Russian military practices, over the Black Sea on January 29. As confirmed by U.S. Naval Forces Europe, a Russian SU-27 engaged in an unsafe interaction with a U.S. EP-3 in international airspace, with the Russia pilot closing to within 5 feet and crossing directly in front of the EP-3’s flight path.

On November 25, a Russian Su-30 Flanker fighter jet intercepted a U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon.
