This dramatic footage shows the moment a Russian fighter jet buzzes a US destroyer in the Black Sea. The aircraft comes within yards of the the deck on the USS Porter as it shoots overhead.
It is unclear why the jet engaged in such an aggressive manoeuvre, but Russia has recently been reasserting its strategic control over the Black Sea region.
Russia has a huge naval battle fleet stationed in Sevastopol. The Kremlin is spending a fortune beefing up the nation’s armed forces.
Putin’s forces are carrying out a gruelling Cold War exercise in freezing Arctic conditions as Russia moves to bolster its military presence in the region.
A 2,000 kilometre convoy of snow trucks and impenetrable tanks was seen thundering over the frozen Laptev Sea as it travelled to a new state-of-the-art military base.
Units will test out new equipment and specialised uniforms that can stand -30C conditions after travelling from the bleak Arctic port of Tiksi to the island of Kotelny.
Deputy Defence Minister Gen. Dmitry Bulgakov said the aim was to “research and test new and promising models of weapons and military and special equipment in the Arctic”.
