Fox News reported this morning (Sunday) that another aerial incident occurred between a U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane and a Russian fighter jet. According to the report, the incident took place on Friday above the Black Sea near Crimea.

The American news agency reported that U.S. officials said that a Russian Su-27 approached U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon recon aircraft, flying within 12 meters of it. The incident occurred after U.S. President Donald Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Yesterday, Fox News reported that a similar incident occurred in the same area. The two aerial incidents took place after the U.S. Air Force intercepted two Russian bombers and two Russian fighter jets near Alaska two weeks ago.
