It crossed in front of the US plane from left to right while using its afterburners, the statement said, adding the aircraft were so close that the American patrol plane crossed through the Russian fighter's jet wash.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jet reportedly crossed in front of the U.S. P-8A Poseidon aircraft on November 25, flying as close as 50 feet, and turned on its afterburners, Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza, a Pentagon spokeswoman, told CNN.

A U.S. surveillance plane experienced "violent turbulence" when an Russian fighter jet cut in front of it over the Black Sea in a weekend incident that the United States deemed "unsafe", U.S. European Command (Eucom) said Tuesday. The Navy aircraft had its transponder on and was conducting "routine operations in global airspace". Russian Federation has access to the Black Sea but so do three USA allies, as well as occasional military training partners Ukraine and Georgia.

The Russian fighter "spoiled the plans of the American reconnaissance jet", Russian state TV channel Rossiya 24 reported, while state-run Sputnik radio cited a professor at Russia's military studies academy concluding that Russia's "military aviation just doesn't fly that way".

As for the unsafe aspects of the Su-30s actions, Baldanza said that its close approach and use of afterburners forced the Poseidon aircraft to enter its "jet wash".

Also speaking to state news agency RIA Novosti, the retired deputy commander of Russia's air force, Nikolay Antoshkin, dismissed the US reaction.

"Unsafe actions have the potential to cause serious harm and injury to all air crews involved", Baldanza told the outlet.
