The United States military has strongly condemned the close “flybys” by two Russian warplanes.

The aircraft staged what looked like simulated attack passes near a US guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea.

The Russian Su-24 planes appeared unarmed but flew within an estimated 9 metres from the ship and twice passing below the ships navigation bridge.

An American official described them as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.
