MOSCOW - The crews of the Russian Su-24 bombers which flew near a US guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday respected all safety rules, Interfax news agency quoted Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov as saying on Thursday.

The US military said that the warplanes had simulated attack passes near the USS Donald Cook, with one official describing them as one of the most aggressive interactions in recent memory.
