[Video] U.S. Navy Accuse Russia Of Unsafe Interception Over Black Sea

Unic Press UK: The United States Navy has accused Russia of unsafely intercepting a U.S. EP-3 Aries aircraft when a Russian SU-27 carried out a high speed pass directly in front of the mission [spy] aircraft, saying that the action of the Russian had not been responsible.

Excerpts of a statement Monday from the U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet Public Affairs reads:

“. . . a U.S. EP-3 Aries aircraft flying in international airspace over the Black Sea was intercepted by a Russian SU-27. This interaction was determined to be unsafe. . . The intercepting SU-27 made an additional pass, closing with the EP-3 and applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away. While the Russian military is within its right to exercise within international airspace, this interaction was irresponsible. . . Unsafe actions‎ increase the risk of miscalculation and potential for midair collisions.”
