If the watching satellite is a hundred miles away, I don't see much to complain about.
I could see it as a big deal if the Russian satellites carried satellite disabling or interference technology. One hundred miles away is not very far away in terms of an orbit - certainly not close enough to worry about a collision or an intercept, but easily close enough to interfere with or damage the spy satellite.

As it stands, though, this is probably just Russia trying to troll the US again.
