Russian fighter su-27 "unsafe and unprofessional manner, " intercepted the American aircraft EP-3 in global airspace over the Black sea, reported the press service of the US Navy.

The Russian SU-27 jet failed to establish radio contact and made two "really close" passes before engaging afterburners that shook the entire American EP-3 Aries, Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon told reporters.

US Navy said that such maneuvers of the Russian aircraft endanger pilots and crew of the American Board.

The US crew reported turbulence following that initial interaction in which the direct pass occurred. A USA spy plane Boeing RC-135U made a reconnaissance flight on the Russian western border on last October 19. We expect them to behave within worldwide standards set to ensure safety and to prevent incidents, including the 1972 Agreement for the Prevention of Incidents On and Over the High Seas (INCSEA).

In turn, Russian Federation has denied the statement of the us authorities that the maneuver was carried out "unsafe". Navy EP-3E Aries spy plane, it said.

It's unclear how close the aircraft came to hitting each other or whether the Russian fighter was armed.

"The U.S. aircraft was operating in accordance with worldwide law and did not provoke this Russian activity", the statement reads.

After resolving the issue "in a safe manner", the Su-27 returned to its base.
