A U.S. Navy destroyer in the Baltic Sea had a close encounter with two Russian fighter jets that were carrying out “aggressive” flight maneuvers close to the ship on Monday and Tuesday.
The planes were seen buzzing the deck in videos and images released by United States European Command, which oversees the area where the ship was operating.
“In my judgement these maneuvers… are unprofessional and unsafe.” said Commander Adm. Mark Ferguson in a statement.
