(Washington, DC) - A Russian jet pilot is being accused of trying to provoke a U.S. warship in the Black Sea. The Pentagon reported the jet buzzed the USS Donald Clark at a low altitude about a dozen times over the weekend, getting within one-thousand feet of the ship. The jet appeared to be unarmed. The missile destroyer is currently docked in Romanian. It was deployed to the region in reaction to the rising tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
