"Dispute Moscow's claims": the US named the target of the destroyer's invasion of Russian waters


November 24, 2020 in Peter the Great Bay, the largest in the Sea of ​​Japan, there was an incident military character. The BOD Admiral Vinogradov of the Russian Navy TF was literally driven out by the uninvited USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) URO-class URO destroyer, which violated Russia's territorial waters. The Americans have already announced the purpose of the "visit" of their warship, which looks more like a targeted invasion or provocation.


After "John McCain" was in neutral (international) waters, the command of the Seventh Operational Fleet of the US Navy (about 50 ships stationed at bases in Japan and the island of Guam) issued a statement. It says that the purpose of the destroyer was to "confirm and protect" the recognized "rights and freedoms" of navigation (navigation), "challenging excessive claims and ambitions" of Moscow in this area.

In the opinion of the Americans, in 1984 the USSR illegally declared the "closing line 106 miles long," which bounds the said bay, as its internal waters. Moscow then allegedly violated the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea by trying to take more than it should. At the same time, modern Russia "continued the claims of the USSR", claiming that the said bay is a "historical bay" in accordance with the same international law.

The command stressed that by carrying out this action, Washington showed its disagreement with Moscow. The USA allegedly proved that this water area is not the waters of Russia.

The United States has been operating in the Indo-Pacific on a daily basis for over 100 years. <…> The United States will fly, sail and work wherever international law allows. <...> The United States will continue to defend rights and freedoms and guarantee them to all

- summed up the Americans, hinting that this was not the last such "visit".

    The Americans felt the weakness of our government, now they will become impudent by leaps and bounds. Well, our government at least took care of decency.

      And they also felt the weakness of China, there are constantly such incidents. That missiles are shot down, then they fly into the air defense zone, and so on. This overseas hamlo provokes everyone.





      What concern you want from the government is not entirely clear. Or do you suggest drowning right away?

        I want our government to react somehow, and not pretend that nothing happened.

        Well, why not? If brazenly (not mistaken, but deliberately, we said we will continue to violate, wait) invaded our territory, sink it and no longer poke around, I guarantee. Well, why do we need rockets then?

          Do you want Putin personally to come to the podium and tore the vest on his chest, or will Mishustin be enough? Not too much honor for an imported pelvis? I mean it was a provocation. Maybe this is the kind of reaction they would like? I suppose even the destroyer was not chosen by chance, the name is symbolic. Why now? Perhaps this is due to their elections or the difficult situation in the economy. A "limited" conflict will justify some kind of emergency measures. Or we are so hinted that it is not worth interfering with the "games" in the South China Sea. In general, one can only guess about the goals. I think you shouldn't play by their rules and react too emotionally.

          Well, why not? If brazenly (not mistaken, but deliberately, we said we will continue to violate, wait) invaded our territory, sink it and no longer poke around, I guarantee. Well, why do we need rockets then?

          Ukrainian boats went even more impudently into the strait, for some reason they were not sunk. The Iranians seized the boat with the American Marines, but did not sink, the Chinese somehow restrain themselves, in Soviet times they limited themselves to ramming in the Black Sea, the Swedes and their "colleagues" did not rush to destroy our submarine, remember the story about the "Swedish Komsomolets"? There are plenty of such examples. And they all have rockets.

        Left in a dangerous world for them, completely alone and in despair, Russian patriots dream of leaning against someone strong.
        Hence these endless and meaningless references to China with pathetic attempts to oppose it to America and lament-howling, like that "we are with China" or "China is with us", and attempts in any way to bend over and score points from a powerful and very dangerous neighbor for Russia with its territorial claims.
        Although China has made it clear that it is pursuing only its own interests, it will not go against the interests of the United States, its main trading partner. Therefore, he denied Russia any loans, does not buy OFZs with gas in the quantities Putin needs, and graciously allows him to build pipelines that are unnecessary for him and ruinous for Russia solely at Russian expense.

          Typical "stamp" of Svidomo zmagars smile You know, your nickname is also characteristic. Do you consider yourself among the "white sahibs"? Well, well, feel like a person at least on the Internet, in life they will only laugh at listing themselves to gentlemen, for gentlemen you are colonial ... dreaming of kissing the master's boot. winked

          Hence these endless and meaningless links

          Are you drawing a conclusion from your own conclusion or assumption? belay I don't even want to discuss it.

          Although China has made it clear that it is pursuing only its own interests, it will not go against the interests of the United States, its main trading partner.

          You will not believe, as a rule, countries welcome their own interests, if these are not colonies like Ukraine and what Belarus can turn into if you like you will seize power. True, the probability of this is extremely small. I wish you to continue to shake off the OMON boots and enjoy the chairman's reign. Miserable zmagarenysh can only crap on the Internet with Polish money. That China will not go against the interests of the United States, did your comrades-in-arms tell you in the chat? smile

          Therefore, he refused Russia any loans, does not buy OFZs with gas in the quantities Putin needs, and graciously allows him to build pipelines that are unnecessary for him and ruinous for Russia solely at Russian expense.

          I understand you, it’s difficult to ride the streets all autumn, take a break, collect your thoughts there is no time. As soon as you have a free minute, try to calm down and think .... Just sit down first, you can even not in the paddy wagon, but just on the bench, because a break in the template can adversely affect the Zmagar "bone".
          Gas pipeline breaks off at the Russian-Chinese border? If not, who "graciously allows" the Chinese to build "ruinous" pipelines and at their expense winked You may not like the answer. winked
          OFZ for October 1.404 trillion rubles, November 737.7 billion rubles. Who exactly buys them did not delve into. Why it should be the Chinese is not clear request

          As for loans ...

          According to the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance, as of January 1, 2020, Russia issued loans and borrowings for about $ 40 billion, of which $ 15,8 billion - to the former USSR countries

          Perhaps this will be a revelation for you, but come on, it's time to grow up. What would you have without this money, you can see the example of your southern neighbors.

    For such cases, there should be an article in the legislation. And then the investigation, court and sanctions against the country in case of failure to comply with the court decision (for example, non-payment of a fine). yes

    So that the warships of the Russian Federation also do not pass the northwestern passage from the Arctic to the Atlantic Ocean within the framework of the right to freedom of navigation and look at the reaction of the United States.
    The excuse that the destruction of a border trespasser is tantamount to a declaration of war is legal casuistry, but the invasion of a warship, an aircraft, a missile is serious.
    These provocations will continue until the Russian Federation responds adequately - to scold and shoot down border violators.
    Everyone has long been accustomed to the fact that the Russian Federation never adequately responds to provocations - a ban on flying under its own flag, insults to the President, an imitation of a nuclear strike, a civilian plane shot down by Ukraine, a military plane by Turkey, violation of borders, not to mention interference in the elections of almost all US allies, and other sins like the use of military (!) toxic substances to settle scores with deserters such as Sripal, Litvinenko, bulk and even Gorbachev living in Germany fears retribution.
    So things will go, soon NATO ships will go from Mariupol to the Baltic Sea along the internal river routes and require the Russian Federation to provide pilots and armed guards.
    Well, there is no need to talk about the Northern Sea Route - for a long time they have been talking about the recognition of the right to freedom of navigation and international, i.e. USA, jurisdiction. Maybe it’s not too late to sell the rights to the Northern Sea Route as they sold Alaska, at least there will be some gain.

        But Ukrainian blacks-albinos, like you, now have American boats written off due to fatigue of metal hulls, which will go to the bottom from the first fresh wind, even cranes are not required.
