U.S. Navy releases video of Russian ship that 'aggressively approached' U.S. destroyer

Moscow has rejected Washington’s allegation that a Russian navy vessel came dangerously close to a US navy destroyer in the North Arabian Sea.

In a statement, Russia's Defense Ministry claimed that it was the American vessel that crossed the path of the Russian ship. It described the US action as unprofessional and an intentional violation of international maritime security norms. The statement came after the US Navy released videos, claiming that a Russian warship aggressively approached an American destroyer. It said the Russian ship risked collision by initially refusing to change course. Last year, the US navy had a similar confrontation with a Russian warship in the Pacific Ocean.
