Russia has scrambled military jets in response to an American navy destroyer which, it has been reported in Russian media, was acting “aggressively” in the Black Sea.

The Russian defence minister, speaking at a security summit in Singapore, said US missile ships operating near Moscow’s territorial waters “pose a danger to strategic stability” between the two countries.

State news service RIA Novosti quoted a military source as saying the USS Ross was sighted heading straight for Russian waters after leaving the Romanian port of Costanta on Saturday.

    “was acting “aggressively””, the Ukrainian’s, can tell the, Russian defence minister, about aggression. This is the, “Cold War’ part II. There was a short time frame, when, Boris Yeltsin, was the President of Russia, when the relationship between the US, and Russia, was good. When Vladamir Putin, became the leader, of Russia, and a former KGB player. I thought, this is not a good thing. Well, the situation, is even worse, than I had feared. Also, anyone in Russia, that criticizes Putin, is not around, very long. Putin, goes to his KGB, bag of tricks, and then, no more criticism.
