The U.S. Navy on Wednesday released five more videos of an "unsafe" intercept by a Russian military jet, after some questioned the original video over not showing the Russian plane as close as the Navy alleged.
"This is but the latest example of Russian military activities disregarding global norms and agreements", it continued.
The two planes came so close together that the US EP-3E was forced to fly through the Russian's "jet wash", according to US Naval Forces Europe spokeswoman, Captain Pamela Kunze.
On Monday evening, the U.S. State Department issued a statement, noting the incident with the "highest level of concern".
Meanwhile, Russian Defense Ministry claimed they behaved "strictly in accordance with worldwide airspace rules" and "approached the aircraft at a safe distance" to identify it as it approached the border of Russian airspace.
Russian Federation has denied any provocative action took place. The Russian military stated after discovering the object to be ЕР-3Е Aries II, the pilots followed the plane at a "safe distance" till it moved away from the border.
The swiftly criticized for "flagrantly" violating worldwide law, but US officials have been on high alert since April, when Moscow flew two bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapons, although apparently unarmed, within 100 miles of Alaska's Kodiak Island.
The plane then continued to enter the EP-3's flightpath, leaving the aircraft to have to fly through jet wash and causing "violent turbulence" onboard. "Unsafe actions increase the risk of miscalculation and midair collisions". In this photo, Russian Sukhoi Su-27 jet fighters perform during an air show in St. Petersburg on April 25, 2015.
