Russian military aircraft performed a dangerous maneuver when intercepting the U.S. reconnaissance plane over the Black Sea. CNN reported that with a reference to Pentagon.

The Russian plane approached the U.S. aircraft up close, with 1.5 meters of distance between them. The U.S. Navy were forced to terminate the reconnaissance flight.

Department of the State said it was extremely concerned about this act, adding that the U.S. airplane acted within the international law, while Russia rudely violated it.
