This may seem like nothing new to Cold War-era veterans but it's the first time this happened this year:

First on CNN: Russian warship 'aggressively approached' US destroyer in Arabian Sea
By Barbara Starr, Ryan Browne and Zachary Cohen, CNN
2 hrs ago
A Russian warship "aggressively approached" a US Navy destroyer while it was operating in the North Arabian Sea Thursday, ignoring warnings from the US vessel and increasing the risk of a collision, the US Navy said Friday.
Video of the incident, which was obtained by CNN, shows the Russian warship rapidly approaching the USS Farragut, coming as close as 180 feet to the US ship before changing course, according to two defense officials.
The incident is the latest example of a close encounter between US and Russian military forces that American officials have described as unsafe and provocative.
(...SNIPPED)

SSV-175 Viktor Leonov, a Russian intelligence gathering ship. Same one that was off the Florida coast a while back.

Maybe trying to gauge the USN command response to these incidents. Intercepts of communications a.s.o.
