US Warship Poses Free Navigation 'Challenge' to Russian Federation

SINISTER Igor Korotchenko claims Russian submarines are lurking near the Gulf of Mexico

Just last week, the United States sent the USS Chancellorsville, a guided-missile cruiser, near the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea to similarly challenge China's "excessive maritime claims", the Navy said.

The US Navy has not conducted a freedom of navigation operation in the area since 1987 during the height of the Cold War, a naval source told CNN.

The U.S.is required to notify Turkey under a treaty that governs the passage of military vessels from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea.

Kyle Raines, a spokesman for the Fleet, which oversees naval operations in the region, told CNN, adding, "We routinely conduct operations to advance security and stability throughout the United States 6th Fleet area of operations to include the worldwide waters and airspace of the Black Sea". Russia's claim is based on a baseline drawn across the mouth of Peter the Great Bay and extending the 12 nautical mile zone out from that baseline.

Donald Trump blames Mueller probe, 'Presidential Harassment' for approval rating
No matter how many times Trump complains he is the victim of a "witch hunt", the truth will eventually come out. He called those reports "Fake News", claiming the counter-report already has 87 pages "done".

The operation comes as the United States and Russia are clashing over a variety of issues, including US accusations that Russia has violated terms of the 1987 Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF, and USA complaints over recent Russian operations near Ukraine. "That is true in the Sea of Japan, as in other places around the globe", McMarr said.

United States officials say such operations are meant to enforce the right of free passage in global waters and to challenge excessive claims.

The Defense Department regularly conducts such "freedom of navigation" exercises, but it usually does so in the South China Sea in challenges to claims by China.

Kevin Hart steps down as Oscars host over anti-gay tweets
In an earlier post Thursday, Hart wrote on Instagram that critics should "stop being negative" about his earlier anti-gay remarks. I'm in a great place - a great mature place where all I do is spread positivity. "If you're not doing that, get out of my page".

Last month, Russian Federation seized three Ukrainian navy ships in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.

The U.S. Pacific Fleet acknowledged the move by the USS McCampbell was a "challenge" to Russia, CNN reported.

Last week Donald Trump cancelled a planned meeting with Mr Putin at the G20 summit in Argentina because of Russia's renewed campaign of aggression against Ukraine.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation conference in Brussels Tuesday, said the alliance "will collectively develop [a] set of responses that demonstrate to Russians this behavior is unacceptable".
