A Russian ship again made a close approach to a U.S. Navy ship in the Mediterranean Sea in an encounter that American officials are labeling “unprofessional.”

On Thursday, the Russian frigate Yaroslav Mudryy came within 150 yards of the guided missile cruiser USS San Jacinto — two weeks after the same Russian ship came within 315 yards of the American destroyer USS Gravely.
