(Worthy News) - Russia's Defence Ministry said on Tuesday a U.S. destroyer had approached dangerously close to a Russian warship in the Mediterranean Sea on June 17, and protested at what it said was a flagrant U.S. violation of rules to avoid collisions at sea.

The alleged incident involved the USS Gravely and the Russian Navy frigate Yaroslav Mudry, the ministry said in a statement. The Gravely approached the Russian vessel at a distance of 60-70 meters from the port side and crossed in front of it, it said.

At the time of the incident, the Russian ship was in international waters in the eastern Mediterranean, cruising steadily and without making any dangerous maneuvers, the Russian statement said. There was no immediate comment from Washington. [ Source ]

  1. Obama's military just itching to start an incident. They know that the whole world is aware and on the lookout for False Flags so they can't get away with one of those. But how about just an accident and then claim that the Russians instigated it? Like Obama tried to say that Russia hacked Hillary's emails calling it an act or war.
    Yes, Obama (God I hate that name) has just a few months before he's thrown into the history pile with all the other garbage humanity.......Hitler, Stalin, Idi Amin, Mussolini, Mao, George Bush Sr and Jr.
