On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest

After the incident, the foreign media reported that “Donald Cook” was rushed into a port in Romania. There all the 27 members of the crew filed a letter of resignation. It seems that all 27 people have written that they are not going to risk their lives. This is indirectly confirmed by the Pentagon statement according to which the action demoralized the crew of the American ship

I agree that is scary if true. From what I have read, this story originated on Russian Radio so you do have to consider the possibility that it is BS. One statement that supports the 'propaganda' theory, "all the 27 members of the crew filed a letter of resignation."
The USS Donald Cook has a crew of 280, not 27.

According to the USNI News only the part about the Russian plane buzzing the USS Donald Cook is true. The rest is bs.

Following the 2014 Fencer flyby, reports in fringe Russian language blogs claimed the SU-24s were armed with a new jammer that rendered the SPY-1D radar inoperable on Cook — one of the Navy’s older guided missile destroyers.

At the time of the reports in 2014, USNI News investigated the possibility of a Russian super jammer capable of being fielded by a Fencer.

Several aviation and radar experts told USNI News the likelihood of a Russian fighter sized aircraft fielding a jammer capable of rendering a SPY-1D completely inoperable — as some Russian publications have claimed — was extremely remote.

 

Russian sources also claimed propaganda bs about the USS Ross which wasn't true.
