RUSSIA appears to be testing Donald Trump with a series of highly provocative military moves — as tensions between the two superpowers reaches boiling point, The Sun reports.

Russian jets buzzed a US destroyer with several “dangerous flybys” in a bolshie show of strength slammed by a Navy officers as “unsafe and unprofessional”.

And Kremlin strongman Vladimir Putin’s ramping up of violence in Ukraine has threatened America’s wrath — with the President saying Russia had “TAKEN” Crimea. Four military aircraft swooped past the USS Porter as it sat docked off the Romanian coast last week, it has been revealed.

Radio operators on the Porter, which is armed with guided missiles, contacted the planes as they flew past on Friday but received no response. Meanwhile, a Russian spy ship has slunk to just 30 miles from the American coastline.

A US official quoted by a Fox News said the ship is “loitering” near a vital American submarine base at Groton, Connecticut. Revealing last week’s squaring-up on the Black Sea, Navy Capt. Danny Hernandez said: “There were several incidents involving multiple Russian aircraft”.

The European Command spokesperson added: “They were assessed by the commanding officer as unsafe and unprofessional.” One SU-24 fighter came within just 200 yards of one of the Porter, according to another U.S official who did not wish to be named.
