US NAVY makes dangerous maneuvers

A US destroyer approached dangerously a Russian ship this month.

The Russian ship was reported to follow its course and didn't violate any international laws.

The ministry of defense of Russia said: "US destroyer Gravely made a close encounter with a Russian warship in the eastern Mediterranean on June 17 at a distance of 60-70 meters [197-229 feet] on the port side and crossed the Yaroslav Mudry’s course along the bow at a dangerous distance of 180 meters [590 feet]."

The Pentagon was informed on the "gross violation by the Gravely destroyer's commander and crew" of International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea and a similar Russian-US intergovernmental agreement.
