Russian jet flying past US warship in Black Sea

submit to reddit

A Russian Su-24 aircraft is shown flying an estimated 500 meters (1,640 feet) off the side of the USS Ross.

The US military has released a new video about a “routine encounter” of a Russian warplane and a US destroyer in the Black Sea, rejecting any provocations by the US vessel.

The US Navy released the video on Monday after Russian media reported the Su-24 aircraft forced the guided-missile destroyer USS Ross to change course when it was heading into Russia’s territorial waters.

The American destroyer was leaving the Romanian port of Costanta.

Russian news agency RIA Novosti said the Russian Navy forced the USS Ross to go into neutral waters in the Black Sea.

In a statement on Sunday, US Naval Forces Europe-Africa said the incident was routine and the warship never altered operations.

“Ross continued on her mission after observing the aircraft return to base,” said the statement. “At no time did Ross act aggressively nor did she deviate from her planned operations.”

The video shows a Russian plane flew an estimated 500 meters (1,640 feet) off the right side of the American vessel at an altitude of 600 feet.

The incident happened as the two superpowers have tense relations over the crisis in Ukraine.

American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen told Press TV on Sunday that Washington’s belligerent policies against countries like Russia will eventually start World War III.

He said measures taken by NATO Commander General Philip Breedlove and his friends in Washington as they are approaching Russian waters in the Black sea could lead to a major conflict.

“I believe these people want to bring about World War III,” the Washington-based author said.

“It is not a surprise that Russia would be protective of its territorial waters,” he said. ”After all, if Russian ships entered the Gulf of Mexico and closely approached Louisiana and Florida coasts, the US would respond with aircraft and probably ships.”

    O Man, before my laptop battery “World Power” completely drained-out, I wanna send an email to raise my concern and case to the highest level of authority not in US, not even in NATO, but, in Kremlin.
    My the biggest concern is:
    WuT Da Puck, why do you guys always intercept US aircrafts and ship with an unarmed fighter?
    WuT Da Puck, Do you guys think just an repeat an unarmed fighter Su 24 is more than enough?
    Sorry…. ma battery “World Power” drained-out, and I need some papmers or huggies.
