The US Navy has posted a video showing one of its planes being intercepted by a Russian jet in worldwide airspace over the Black Sea.

"This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 conducting a high speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft, which put our pilots and crew at risk", a statement from the US European 6th Fleet reads.

American officials were not initially able to determine if the Russian aircraft was armed or not.

A Boeing P-8A Poseidon exploration aircraft and a Global Hawk drone, both of the U.S. Air Force, flew over areas near the Russian southern coast and the confrontation zone in Donbass, Ukraine, on October 28.

"Although the Russian military has the right to train in global airspace, this interaction was irresponsible, the statement of the US Navy".

The Russian plane stayed around the EP-3 for about 25 minutes, according to the US Navy, which insisted that its aircraft was "operating in accordance with worldwide law". The Russian jet flew past it a second time, applying its afterburner while conducting a banking turn away.

United States airplane EP-3E Aries, which was flying in the global airspace over the Black Sea, was intercepted by the Russian Su-27.

The U.S. Navy claims that such actions endangered the crew of the EP-3, which reported turbulence and vibration. Because of this, after the first flight of a fighter plane-the scout felt the turbulence, and after the second felt the vibration.

"Despite the fact that Russian military has the right to operate in worldwide airspace, such interaction was irresponsible", the US Navy press service said in Europe and Africa.

In a press briefing following the incident, Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said that there was "just absolutely no reason for this type of behavior".

The Russian embassy in Washington tweeted that the Russian crew was "preventing a violation of Russian airspace and followed all necessary safety procedures".
