Earlier, the military expert 1st Captain Vladimir Gundarov told the Ministry of Culture why there was a conflict situation in the Black Sea with US Navy ships. According to him, Americans believe that they have the right to pass through the territorial waters of any state in accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. The Convention was signed in 1982 and entered into force in 1994.
Our country previously and now believes that the rules of `innocent transit“ do not apply to cases of foreign warships, especially those that go with incomprehensible intentions. On February 12, 1988, the “ selfless“ and & # 39; SKR-6 & # 39; were involved in an operation to oust American ships – the cruiser Yorktown; and the destroyer Caron – from the territorial waters of the USSR.
As Vladimir Gundarov said, “ selfless & # 39; & # 39; he shifted the rudder to the right and made a pile at the stern of Yorktown on the starboard side at an angle of 30 degrees. As a result, sparks fell on impact and friction on the sides, and the side paint ignited.
The anchor of the patrol ship “Selfless” tore the hull of the cruiser with one paw and made a hole in the bow of the side of his ship with the other.
The second Soviet ship is the SKR-6; – he walked tangentially to the left of the destroyer Caron, cut off the railing, tore the side skin and smashed the ship.
Since then, American ships have not allowed such provocations for a long time. Last year, however, in the Gulf of Peter the Great, the American destroyer John McCain entered the territorial sea of Russia near Vladivostok. From there, she was pushed out by the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Vinogradov.
This year in the Black Sea, the naval guards of the Russian border units of the FSB and the naval air force of the Black Sea Fleet had to force the British destroyer Defender fired from territorial waters with warning fire.
