Black Sea encounter: Russian planes fly near American warship

  • Russia’s planes have made close passes over an American warship USS Ross in the Black Sea in recent days, according to Pentagon.

    Russia’s media reports claimed that the USS Ross acted “aggressively”. But US authorities insist that the destroyer was “well within international waters” and on routine operations.

    A video released by the US purportedly shows a Russian warplane barely 500 meters away from the USS Ross.

    The Pentagon said that the ship’s deployment in the area had been announced publicly.
