U.S. officials say Russian fighter jets flew dangerously close to a U.S. warship in the Baltic Sea. A statement from U.S. European Command says the planes passed by multiple times in "a simulated attack profile."
The first incident happened April 11 while the USS Donald Cook was conducting landing drills and refueling an allied military helicopter. The Russian jets returned the following day, this time preceded by a Russian helicopter that circled at a low altitude around the ship.
The government says the aircraft didn't respond to radio advisories in both English and Russian.
