Russian Fighter Planes Confronted U.S. Bomber Over Black Sea

Russian pilots harassed a U.S. B-52 bomber flying over the Black Sea and in international waters, crossing within 100 feet of the bomber’s path, a maneuver the U.S. military called “unsafe and unprofessional.”

The confrontation on Friday was the second between U.S. and Russian military forces in a week. On Tuesday, several American troops operating in northeast Syria were injured when a Russian military vehicle struck their own, according to U.S. officials. Some U.S. officials said they believe the collision was deliberate.
