US forces have recently boosted their activities near Russia's borders. Over the last week several incidents have occurred, an American bomber was spotted over the Baltic Sea followed a few days later by aircraft flying over the Sea of Okhotsk, escorted by Russian planes.

The Russian Defence Ministry has published a video of its planes intercepting American aircraft over the neutral waters of the Black Sea. The footage shows a P-8 Poseidon, RC-135 reconnaissance plane, and KC-135 Stratotanker aerial refuelling aircraft, escorted by a Russian Su-30.

The US warplanes had to change their route and didn't approach the Russian border, the ministry added in a statement.

Moscow stressed that the Russian aircraft carried out its flight in accordance with international laws and regulations.
