Islam News – Russia scrambled an Su-27 fighter jet to intercept a U.S. RC-135 reconnaissance plane flying over neutral waters in the Black Sea, the RIA news agency cited Russia’s defence ministry as saying on Saturday.

Russia said its warplane returned to its base after the U.S. reconnaissance aircraft turned away from Russia’s border. Similar incidents have happened in the area several times this year.
