” While the Russian airplane was operating in worldwide airspace, this interaction was irresponsible,” the Navy included. “We expect them to act within worldwide standards set to make sure security and to prevent occurrences.”

On both occasions, the Navy stated its aircraft was flying in worldwide airspace and was not provoking the Russian aircraft.

The recent encounter comes as Russia performed another provocative test by firing an anti-satellite rocket on Wednesday, according to United States Area Command.

” Russia’s [direct-ascent anti-satellite] test offers yet another example that the dangers to US and allied space systems are genuine, serious and growing,” Gen. John Raymond, the head of Space Command and chief of area operations for US Area Force, stated in a statement Wednesday.

” The United States is ready and committed to deterring aggressiveness and defending the country, our allies, and United States interests from hostile acts in space,” Raymond added.
