"They are studying our missile range": the US Navy announced the appearance of a Russian Navy ship near the Hawaiian Islands

21

Pacific Command fleet The US Navy claims that a Russian reconnaissance ship has approached the Hawaiian Islands. It is located in neutral waters and does not violate international law.


John Gay, spokesman for the US Pacific Fleet, told USNI News the news agency of the US Naval Institute.

The US Pacific Fleet is aware of the Russian vessel operating in international waters off Hawaii and will continue to track it throughout its stay here.

- he said.

To monitor the movements of the Russian Navy ship, the US military intends to use a naval patrol Aviation, warships and other means. The US Pacific Fleet claims to be able to track any vessel in the Indo-Pacific this way.

The US Department of Defense notes that although the Russian ship does not threaten shipping, it does not transmit an automatic identification signal. The US military suggests that the Russian Navy has sent the medium reconnaissance ship SSV-535 Karelia to the Hawaiian shores. Its functions include radio intelligence, that is, the interception and decryption of messages transmitted by radio.

On May 21, this ship was approximately 21 kilometers from the Hawaiian island of Kauai. It houses the Barking Sands missile test site. In the United States, it is believed that it was he who "interested the Russian ship."

From the report:

They are studying our rocket range.

    Are only Americans allowed to study the enemy? Let them get used to it!

      Hysterics!
      When they fly near our borders, we silently drive them away. As soon as we get closer, they raise a howl. They want to demonize us in this way, but it turns out that they present themselves as alarmists and whiners. Such is the hegemonic superpower. Fu.

      Such is the "international law". It is written so that one can study each other without disturbing anything ...
      Well, great, our ships also have the right to spy on the foe!

    What a pleasant surprise, the Americans wake up in the morning, and here "Karelia" rested its nose on the "fence" of territorial waters and broadcast on the air: Good morning Hawaii !!!

    Better ONE RTR ship than several dozen Chinese "peaceful" fishing schooners.

      Let me disagree laughing
      Better one RTR ship, or several dozen schooners, than one tanker or bulk carrier.
      They are the main threat to the military. wink

    Altius would have already finished and adapted for sea reconnaissance.

    They're exploring our rocket range
    ... And what was that?
    Common practice for all countries that can afford it. What is the question then?

    What can you explore in ocean water?
    The radars that shoot telemetry from the test missiles are most likely turned off, because there is nothing to experience at the moment, and there is nothing more interesting.
    Our ship may have gone by at all! and screeching and snot, as if they had already been abused! fellow lol

    "They're studying our rocket range."
    Messrs. Americans, let's be consistent and objective. Question: what are your ships doing, incl. reconnaissance in the Black Sea, and trying to rub against the Crimea?

      It turns out that the British in October last year skirted, crossed the waterways at Cape Khersoness. Just now, we’ll find out why we’ll find out now, it’s not clear. We are "slowing down" again?

    And Hawaii is a famous resorts. The MoE can simply declare that the sailors wanted to rest, they deserved it. There is a wonderful nature, there are a lot of wonderful fish beaches, there are many restaurants and good Vodka in Bari (not as good as domestic, but it will do).

    Crazy, how did the Americans know it? Probably thought for a long time. Interestingly, and there were versions like "the Russians got lost", or like accidentally passed by? laughing
