USA warship challenges Russian Federation claims in Sea of Japan

Russian Submarines Might Instantly Floor Off U.S. Coast To ‘Shock America,’ Analyst Warns

Russian Federation played down the incident, which a US official told CNN took place Wednesday and was the first time the American navy had carried out a "freedom of navigation operation" in that area since the Soviet era in 1987.

Nor did the Navy leave any ambiguity about why the USS McCampbell made the journey.

In a statement, the Pacific Fleet said the destroyer sailed in the vicinity of Peter the Great Bay, near Vladivostok, "to challenge Russia's excessive maritime claims".

Russian Federation does not have legitimate claims to the waters 12 nautical miles beyond its coastline under global law, a spokesperson for the US Pacific Fleet said.

The official told CNN that this was the first time the US has conducted a freedom of navigation operation in that area since 1987, when the Soviet Union was the government making those claims.

"The United States seeks a better relationship with Russian Federation, but this can not happen while its unlawful and destabilizing actions continue in Ukraine and elsewhere", he said.

Russia and the USA are now at odds over the fate of the 1987 INF Treaty and recent Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Russian Federation claims all of Peter the Great Bay, which is home to its Pacific fleet based in Vladivostok. While Russia has ratified the convention, the U.S. has not.

It also comes as the United States and Russia clash over a number of issues, including accusations by Washington that Moscow has violated terms of the 1987 Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), and USA complaints over recent Russian military operations near Ukraine.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo subsequently announced that the US would begin the process of withdrawing from the treaty in 60 days should Russian Federation not come back into compliance.

Russia's actions and its detention of Ukrainian sailors prompted President Donald Trump to cancel a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the G-20 in Argentina.

Maritime law dictates that a nation's sovereign territory only extends 12 nautical miles from shore. "That is true in the Sea of Japan, as in other places around the globe", her statement declared, The Hill reported. Under the 1936 Montreux Convention Regarding the Regime of the Straits, governments must secure permission from Turkey 15 days before seeking to enter the Bosporus Straits, the only route into the Black Sea from the Mediterranean Sea.
