    An interesting service, probably on this Cook. Where only command did not send him. And on the Black Sea, and in the Arctic ... So the whole world for taxpayer money can be seen ...

    The US Navy said that the squadron "did not notice the observation from the ships of the Russian Navy"
    What probably surprised them at first, and then upset. How did you expect that the Russians would begin to behave inappropriately, beat their heads against the wall with anger, wring their hands from powerlessness, oppose something to the whole squadron, etc. But it turned out that the Russians, without noise and din, carried out some of their activities, which the NATO squadron did not even notice. The provocation failed. It remains for our side to surprise the Americans with a group of ships in the Gulf of Mexico and observe their reaction.

      To the point Gennady !!!! Everything passed in silence and Russia did not even express its "chilliness" in the Foreign Ministry .. We thought we would start hysterical overtaking a bunch of ships and nuclear submarines .. laughing

    The naval strike group of the 6th US fleet, located in the Arctic, completed its tasks and left the water area located beyond the Arctic Circle.
    And yet I do not believe that they were beyond the Arctic Circle. Remembering the northern convoys of the times of the Great Patriotic War .... And they are there in shorts and T-shirts doused with water from the hull ...
    For a long time, watch from 6:45 ...
