    The US plane was intercepted by aircraft from Russia's Southern Military District, which escorted it away from the border.

    A US RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft was intercepted by Russian warplanes over the Black Sea, with a video of the event posted on the Russia's Ministry of Defence's YouTube channel.

    The video, apparently recorded from on board one of the interceptors, shows the US aircraft in flight, with none of the Russian planes entering the frame as they seem to be keeping a safe distance.
