The Russian Su-27 flew dangerously close to a U.S. Navy P-8 Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft used primary for anti-submarine warfare while on routine patrol, the official said.

In April, Russian jets buzzed a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Baltic Sea, coming within 30 feet of the Navy ship.

This latest provocation comes as Secretary of State John Kerry is negotiating a cease-fire with Russia in Syria. Earlier today, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said Russia was “trying to play by their own rules” and making the situation in Syria “more violent.”

Carter added, “Russia’s actions in recent years – with its violations of Ukrainian and Georgian territorial integrity, its unprofessional behavior in the air, in space, and in cyber-space, as well as its nuclear saber-rattling – all have demonstrated that Russia has clear ambition to erode the principled international order.”

Carter was speaking at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, Fox News reported.
