The incident, according to a spokesman for the ministry, Michel Baldans, occurred on Monday 25 in January.
“The US aircraft RC-135U, which made an ordinary flight in the international airspace over the Black Sea, was intercepted by the Russian Su-27 in an unsafe and unprofessional manner. We are studying this incident ",she said.
“The Russian Su-27 flew near an American electronic intelligence aircraft, and then made a dangerous turn and went away. The distance was so close that as a result of the jolt from the jet fighter jet, the RC-135 lost controllability, ”the Washington Free Beacon said, citing a source.
According to the publication, "the incident occurred in 30 miles from the coast in international airspace and away from any Russian territory."
Recall that earlier the US and Russian military agreed mutual security measures during flights in Syria. At the same time, the Pentagon then noted that these measures concern only the situation in Syria and do not apply to other regions.
