A Russian MiG-31 fighter jet has been scrambled to escort a U.S. B-1B strategic bomber over the Sea of Japan, TASS news agency reported citing the Russian military, just days after an incident with a U.S. naval destroyer in the same region. This is reported by Reuters.

It said the bomber had not breached the Russian border.

Russia said one of its military vessels chased away a U.S. destroyer that attempted to violate Russian territorial waters during Russian-Chinese naval drills in the Sea of Japan, something Washington said was false.

In addition, Kelin said that this year's increase in Russian gas supplies through the Ukrainian gas transportation system in excess of contractual transit obligations is 10%.
