A Russian SU-24 fighter jet made several low-altitude close passes near the USS Donald Cook in the western Black Sea over the weekend, according to CBS News.

The move comes as tensions continue to rise between Russia and the U.S. over the crises in Ukraine.

A Pentagon spokesperson called the move “provocative and unprofessional.” and said the fighter made multiple passes over the course of 90 minutes, coming within a few thousand feet of the destroyer.

The pilot did not answer radio calls from the Donald Cook.
