According to the Pentagon, Russian warplanes have made several close passes in recent days over a US destroyer sailing in the Black Sea. Russian state media reported that the USS Ross was acting "aggressively". The US Department of Defense, however, said the ship was "well within international waters at all times, performing routine operations". The US Navy released video on Monday of a Russian plane passing as close as 500 meters to the USS Ross. Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said on Monday that the Russian planes were not armed with weapons and the USS Ross maintained its course. The Pentagon added that the ship's deployment to the Black Sea had been publicly announced. The Black Sea encounters are the latest sign of military tension between Russian and the West, amid hostilities in eastern Ukraine.
