Russian sailors politely escorted the tired American colleagues to the exit, so that the latter would not get lost while admiring the picturesque surroundings. Although the Turks claim that someone on the mentioned ships even grabbed their weapons. But this is impossible to verify, and they can easily come up with. Since directly at the scene there were two Turkish warships at once, whose crews were really nervous.
