Russia sends Su-27 fighter jet to intercept U.S. spy plane over Black Sea

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian defence ministry said it had sent a Su-27 fighter plane on Monday to intercept a U.S. surveillance plane over the Black Sea that it said was approaching the Russian border.

The U.S. plane, identified as a P-8 Poseidon, has changed course to move away from the Russian border, the ministry added.
