US published footage of "aggressive behavior" of the ship of the Russian Navy

Another incident involving warships of Russia and the USA occurred in the northern part of the Arabian Sea.

The press service of the 5th fleet of the US Navy announced the "aggressive" rapprochement of the Russian warship with the destroyer USS USS Farragut (DDG 99), which performed the planned operations.

A statement posted on the fleet’s Twitter page said that due to the danger of a collision, the American ship was forced to give five short beeps and require the Russian ship to follow international shipping rules and change course.

As follows from the statement, after a while the Russian ship still changed its course.

Also, on page 5 of the US Navy, a video was posted that captured the moment of the dangerous rapprochement of military courts.

In turn, the Russian Defense Ministry accused the crew of the USS Farragut destroyer of knowingly violating international shipping safety standards and stated that the information published by the Americans was "untrue."

According to the Russian military, the culprit of the incident is precisely the American destroyer, which has grossly violated international rules for preventing collisions of ships at sea, having made a maneuver to cross its course.

    Now almost every car has a DVR. And the Ministry of Defense decided to optimize costs and save. If not, they would have shown their video about the violation, and would not have made excuses. But seriously, the video shows that the Americans intentionally cut our ship.

      He became, after all, and the Americans take off his hand!
      PS I didn’t put an assessment.

      Dear steelworker, I don’t know, they recorded something this time, but there is a video on the TV channel Zvezda on TyTruba:

      The US destroyer made a dangerous rapprochement with the warship Yaroslav the Wise.

      You can see what the Americans are doing.

        Are you pretending to be? Yaroslav the Wise tried to squeeze between the guard ships and the aircraft carrier. After all, there was a squadron, an Amer squadron!
        And naturally, the boor was not given the opportunity to do it!

          And where is the aircraft carrier and the security ships in the video? I see only one bully who cut the course and turned away towards Amer. "Yaroslav the Wise" did not turn off the course. They love to trick and blame Russia for all sins in the Pentagon.

    Hmm ... And the video shows, as I understand it, the Americans crossed the course of our ship ... It all depends on who believes that only he has the right to the truth ...

    Strange Americans, even if they send Turkish cattle carriers "Ashot" from 1 to 41 or further along the course of their movement, they have experience in sinking Russian spies at sea.

    I suspect this is a tricky propaganda move. After all, the point is not who is right - it is to blame in this case, but that the brave-valiant-not-a-step-back-guard-relatives-of their own frontiers fought back YOURSELF, you know, to Amer !!!! And when the president on January 15 talks about the bad economy and poverty, the sweet pill eaten today will not give the people the opportunity to ask “why?”.

    The American cap should be taught or learned, as it goes, MPPSS.

    When two vessels with mechanical engines go intersecting courses so that there is a danger of collision, the vessel that has the other on its right side must give way to the other vessel and at the same time it should, if circumstances allow, avoid crossing the course of the other vessel nose.

    This is an extract from paragraph 15 of the MPPSS.

      A little untruth or “under-registration” and everything is turned upside down in the best style of the famous German pre-war propagandist!

      The interference on the right "must be passed.

      Yes it is! If they are alone. But Amer was an escort ship, the aircraft carrier Truman went to the left of the amer, and Amer could not miss the Russian ship between himself and the aircraft carrier. Well, the captain of the Russian ship could not see the aircraft carrier (unless it was made using stealth technology, although I doubt it). They just showed once again Russian indifference.

        .. the aircraft carrier Truman was on the left of the amer and the amer could not miss the Russian ship between himself and the aircraft carrier ..

        So, he could, since he still missed it?)
        Judge for yourself .. in the full video (I advise you to watch it) you can see how the Russian ship approaches on the right across the “farragut”. The American, instead of just continuing to follow the course, significantly increases his speed so as not to miss the Russian ship.
        As a result, the Russian ship passes behind the stern of the “farragut”, and if an aircraft carrier was walking on the left (as you say), the Russian ship either ended up between the Americans, or even put a “floating airfield” on its side.)
        Or will you say that the “airfield” along with the “farragut” sharply increased its speed and also sailed in front of the Russian ship?))) Always follow the logic of your thoughts, dear!)

        Was the Russian ship a clear threat to your Truman? What was the course of the Russian ship in relation to the amer's order? What was the distance between the ships?

        They just showed once again Russian indifference.

        In February 2017, your cruiser ran aground in Tokyo Bay. The shaft bent, lost two screws, and at the same time splashed out 4000 liters of hydraulics. Apparently, natural pride and cowboy prowess did not allow him to take a pilot on board. And the summer of 2018. It's a song! Two missile destroyers framed the sides of the bulk carrier and the tanker. 17 sailors were killed. The destroyers suffered decent damage. Commanders, senior officers, assault - on trial. 7th Fleet Commander Joseph Aucoin was fired with the wording: "With the loss of confidence in his ability to carry out his duties." This is so little about do not care. And finally.

        ... each ship overtaking another must keep clear of the path ahead of the ship.

        Article 13 of the same MPPSS.
