Pentagon warns Russia about consequences of incident over Baltic Sea

Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright pointed out potential consequences both to flight safety and bilateral relations of the US and Russia.

“Unprofessional air intercepts have the potential to cause harm to all aircrews involved. More importantly, the careless actions of a single pilot have the potential to escalate tensions between countries,” Wright said, reports.

United States said that Russia’s fighter aircraft intercepted the American RC-135U at a high rate of speed from the rear and later, being close the to the reconnaissance aircraft, made “unsafe and unprofessional manoeuvres”.
