    On 2 April 2023, one Russian Su-35 conducted an unsafe and unprofessional intercept with a U.S. F-16 aircraft. The aircraft were operating in airspace that US-Russian protocols recognize as Coalition-controlled airspace over Syria. The Russian Su-35 had not been deconflicted when it entered the airspace. This incident follows a pattern of dangerous actions by Russian pilots while interacting with U.S. and Coalition aircraft. These aggressive actions by Russian aircrew demonstrate lack of competence and could lead to miscalculation and unintended escalation.
