The Russian Ministry of Defense released a video showing the intercept of US Navy and Air Force aircraft over the Black Sea last week.
Although the intercept took place in neutral airspace, Russia claims the US military aircraft were flying toward the Russian border, and only changed course after Su-30 Flankers intercepted them. The US aircraft are identified as an RC-135 reconnaissance plane, a P-8 Poseidon, and a KC-135 fuel tanker.
