Russia says its fighter jets intercepted US military spy planes as they were trying to snoop on Russian army exercises over the Black Sea.
According to the Russian defense ministry, US planes twice tried to get close to the Russian border over the Black Sea without their transponders turned on. The ministry also says the Russian jets were dispatched "in strict accordance" with international rules. The Pentagon has slammed Russia’s move as unsafe, saying a fighter jet flew within 10 feet of a US Navy surveillance aircraft. Russian jets have also intercepted US Air Force reconnaissance planes several times over the Baltic Sea since the beginning of 2016.
