Russia: US Navy Conducts Operations Near Russian Maritime Claims

Bloomberg

American missile destroyer USS McCampbell sailed on Wednesday, December 5, in the disputed waters of the sea of Japan in the vicinity of the Peter the Great Bay in the South of Primorsky territory of Russian Federation where Vladivostok.

During the same event, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg reportedly declared that the US -led alliance had intensified its presence in the Black Sea region in response to what he described as "Russia's aggressive actions". This was the first FONOP in that part of the Sea of Japan since 1987, Pentagon officials said. Russia's claims in Peter the Great Bay extend 12 nautical miles from the mouth of the bay, but the United States only recognizes claims within 12 nautical miles of the coast. Peter the Great Bay is the largest gulf in the Sea of Japan, also referred to as the East Sea by the Koreas, and home to the Russian's far-east city of Vladivostok and the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet.

"U.S. Forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis", Lt. McMarr added.

She said: "These operations demonstrate the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever global law allows".

This Naval activity followed less than two weeks after Russian Federation seized three Ukrainian vessels off the coast of Crimea in the Black Sea and the announcement by the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, made on Tuesday (4t December) that the U.S. will leave the INF Treaty if Russian Federation does not comply with it within 60 days.

Russian Federation has "partially unblocked" Ukraine's ports on the Azov Sea, allowing ship traffic though the Kerch Strait, Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan said Tuesday in a statement posted on the ministry's website.

The sailing was first reported by CNN.

The US is required to notify Turkey about the passage through the straits under the Montreux Convention, a 1936 treaty that governs the passage of military vessels through the Bosporus and the Dardanelles, which connect the Mediterranean to the Black Sea. "Russia doesn't speak with one voice". They don't stick. Their actions speak louder than words.

Last week, the U.S. Navy sailed the guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville near contested islands in the South China Sea, an operation that drew an immediate diplomatic protest from Beijing. The US last had a ship in the area back in October.

A Russian submarine fleet is lurking in waters near the ocean basin surrounded by the North American continent, according to Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of National Defence magazine.
