“The delegations of the US Navy and the Russian Navy held an annual consultation on the prevention of incidents at sea and in the air above sea space on June 8 in Moscow,” the release said.
According to the press service, during the meeting, "they discussed the recent intercept of American aircraft made by Russian aircraft, as well as incidents with ships in international airspace and water space."
