A Russian Su-27 aircraft has intercepted a US EP-3 spy plane in “unsafe” fashion over the Black Sea, the US Navy said. It posted video, on Twitter, showing an armed Russian fighter jet flying within meters of the spy plane.

The video, which the Navy posted on Twitter, shows a Su-27 flying close to the US spy plane, showing its underbelly before blasting away. The fighter jet appears to be armed, carrying missiles on its wing pylons.

The Russian plane stayed around the EP-3 for about 25 minutes, according to the US Navy, which insisted that its aircraft was “operating in accordance with international law.”

“This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the Su-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, putting at risk the pilots and crew,” the US Navy statement read.

US reconnaissance planes are often taking a peek over Russian borders, unsurprisingly triggering the country’s air force that makes sure the border is not crossed. Yet the Pentagon has been repeatedly complaining over Moscow’s actions, claiming that actions of Russian pilots are “unprofessional” or “unsafe.”
