    The fly-over of two Russian military jets near a US Navy destroyer in the Baltic Sea is an old gimmick, Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters on Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, US media reported that two Russian Su-24 bombers flew close to the Donald Cook missile destroyer as a Polish helicopter was taking off from its deck.

    "I hear the Russians are up to their old tricks again in the EUCOM [US European Command] AOR [area of responsibility]," Warren said in a briefing.

    In March, the US Navy stated that Donald Cook was on a forward-deployed patrol, working with US allies in Europe to develop and improve maritime forces, and maintain regional security.
