U.S. Navy: Russian Warship’s ‘Unsafe’ Move Nearly Caused Collision With Cruiser

Last year, the Admiral Vinogradov came within 50 to 100 feet of the USS Chancellorsville as the American ship was busy recovering a helicopter. The Chancellorsville had to take evasive action to avoid the Russian warship, the Navy says.

Russia’s military said at the time that the two vessels were «heading in parallel directions» when the U.S. ship «impeded» its vessel.
