The USS McCampbell guided missile destroyer did not go farther than 100 kilometres (62 miles) from Russian territorial waters, Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov stated.

The US destroyer was moving under control of big anti-submarine ship admiral tributes, the aircraft of Russian Pacific fleet aviation, according to the Russian Defence Ministry.

“In reality, the USS McCampbell destroyer did not even approach Russian territorial waters closer than by 100 kilometers. What is more, during all its passage through the international waters, the US destroyer was moving under control of the Russian Admiral Tributs large anti-submarine ship, which was in close proximity, as well as of the Pacific Fleet naval aircraft,” Konashenkov said.

He noted that the Pacific Fleet was taking measures to control the vessel’s actions, as well as actions of other warships in this area.

“The only thing ‘demonstrated’ by the crew of the US destroyer was a failed attempt to get away at maximum speed from the Pacific Fleet forces that were escorting it. Currently, the crew of the US McCampbell destroyer ‘is demonstrating’ its courage at a distance of more than 400 kilometres from the territorial waters of the Russian Federation in the central part of the Sea of Japan,” Konashenkov said.

The statements come after US Navy spokesperson Rachel McMarr said on 5 December that McCampbell entered the Sea of Japan in the vicinity of Peter the Great Bay to “challenge” Russia’s maritime claims there.

Why are American warships showing off around Vladivostok?
We can imagine the headlines if a Russian warship did the same before San Francisco . . .

Totally irrelevant. There is no legal difference between 5 meters outside and 100 kms outside of territorial waters.

Could it be, perhaps, because for US president it is not important, what he does, but how long can he do it?
