Russian fighter jets flew very close to US Navy ship
Two Russian fighter jets on Tuesday passed very close to the US navy vessel Donald Cook in international waters in the Baltic Sea, according to US authorities.

The unarmed fighter jets flew so close to the ship that they made waves in the ocean, said a Pentagon spokesman.

In addition a Russian helicopter circled over the ship and took pictures, according to the spokesman.

One of the planes flew only 23 meters from the ship, according to CNN's sources.

A source also says that the planes approached the ship in the same way as they would during an attack.

Donald Cook was accompanied by a Russian ship for a while before the incident.

The Americans made contact with the ship on the radio and said that they were on a routine mission.

Both the US and Russia have previously criticized each other for the military presence in the area of the Baltic Sea.

On Wednesday, Pentagon provided pictures and a video of the incident.
