MOSCOW — Russia said Thursday it does not understand the "painful reaction from our American colleagues" after two of its warplanes made low passes over a U.S. Navy destroyer.
A U.S. official said the maneuvers were "unsafe" and "unprofessional" — and that the jets were so low they left "wake in the water." He said a Russian KA-27 helicopter also made seven passes above the destroyer and was believed to be photographing the ship.
