A U.S. Navy guided-missile cruiser was forced to execute emergency maneuvers on Friday after a Russian destroyer came within several yards of the American ship, the U.S. Navy’s Seventh Fleet said.

I Stand For The Flag

Guns America Tshirt Offer

The USS Chancellorsville was operating in the Philippine Sea at approximately 11:45 a.m. on Friday when the Russian ship DD572 “maneuvered from behind and to the right of the Chancellorsville, accelerated, and closed to an unsafe distance” of between 50 and 100 feet, Seventh Fleet said in a statement.“”

The behavior is unsafe and unprofessional.

“This unsafe action forced Chancellorsville to execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid a collision,” the statement continued.

Russia’s Pacific Fleet argued it was the American ship that changed course without warning, forcing the Russian ship to execute an emergency maneuver to avoid a collision. The Russian statement also said that the ship, the Admiral Vinogradov, broadcast a protest on an international frequency to the U.S. ship, telling it that its actions were unacceptable.

    It is more than clear that the Russian ship was in the wrong. We Americans must stand firm and demand an apology with no further incidents of this kind in the future.

    Release the video footage in it’s entirety and I’ll form an opinion. Not that my opinion means a fart in a windstorm. I’d also like some information on the central banks that would be funding any war with Russia and their kids that are serving in the military on both sides. Did these two ships crews have any vodka prior to this nonsense?

    Agree. The Russians want to let us know they are still there. Of course, if they ever hit one of our ships, it will be an entirely different story. But right now, I think they’re just flexing their muscles.

    This is getting “commonplace” lately. They are “testing” to see if they can provoke a fight. I am afraid this will happen if they persist. After all, Putin is sucking up to china.

    Russia is just trying to be RELEVANT. Their economy sucks that nobody has been aware of them except China-who is trying to get them in it’s corner against the trade war with Trump. In reality–those Nations do not really TRUST each other.

    There has always been Safe Sea maneuvers in all Navies, Russia is noted for unsafe procedures, it should be interesting to see what Putin has to say. And yes I think their lookin for a scrape.
