    The US aircraft was apparently spotted conducting a flight a mere 75 kilometres away from the coast of Russia's Crimean Peninsula.

    Footage of what appears to be a US P-8 Poseidon surveillance aircraft being intercepted by Russian warplanes while flying near the coast of Crimea has recently surfaced online, posted by a Russian journalist who claimed that the video was provided to him by one of his subscribers.

    According to the caption, the incident occurred on 3 July, with the US aircraft conducting its flight about 75 kilometres away from the peninsula's coast.

    ​Another video of this intercept, which the journalist allegedly obtained from the same source, offers a more detailed view of the American plane.
