Russian Jets Buzz U.S. Navy Destroyer in Black Sea

Two Russian Sukhoi Su-24 supersonic fighter/attack jets buzzed the American Navy destroyer USS Ross while operating in the Black Sea on Saturday. And that’s about the end of where the two countries agree on what happened during the incident.

The Pentagon vehemently denies reports from Russian state news that the Ross was heading for Russian territorial waters and was “forced away” by the Russian fighters. Indeed, Defense Department spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren downplayed the incident as all but routine.
