Russia says it has intercepted U.S. spy planes over Black Sea - Ifax

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s defence ministry said on Wednesday it had scrambled a jet above the Black Sea to intercept two U.S. spy planes approaching its border, following a similar incident earlier in the day over the Baltic, Interfax reported.

In both cases, the U.S. planes turned away before reaching the Russian border, the defence ministry was cited as saying.
