Russia-US face off in Baltic

  • A Russian Jet fighter intercepted an American jet over the Baltic Sea on Friday. Tension between the two super powers is on the rise since Russia’s annexation of Crimea and has resulted in disruption of relations between the West and the East. Pentagon blamed Russia for acting in unsafe and unprofessional manner while Russia alleged the Jet to have turned off the transponder signal which helps identify a plane. Russia has time and again made this accusation of US’ Jets flying in the Baltic and nearby regions.
