Rear Admiral calls US destroyer attempt to violate Russian border a provocation

Hero of Russia, retired rear admiral Vsevolod Khmyrov said that the actions of the American destroyer Chafee in the Sea of ​​Japan were a provocation.

“This is just a provocation and nothing else,” quoted him as saying.

Khmyrov noted that the American warship changed its direction only when it was less than 60 meters to the anti-submarine ship “Admiral Tributs”. He stressed that Chafee made a dangerous maneuvering.

In addition, Khmyrov expressed the opinion that such provocations are connected with “the demonstration of the flag’s strength in the responsible zones of the state.”

He also stressed that the Russian Navy is carrying out its usual activities for the protection of territorial waters.

On October 15, in the Peter the Great Gulf, the American destroyer Chafee attempted to violate the Russian maritime border in the Sea of ​​Japan. The anti-submarine ship “Admiral Tributs” did not allow violations of the state border.

Against the background of the incident, the Russian Ministry of Defense called in the US military attaché. The United States said the destroyer USS Chafee was operating in accordance with international law and custom.
