BREAKING: U.S. and Russian Warships Almost Collide

The U.S. Navy says one of its warships was forced to quickly move to avoid a collision with a Russian destroyer in the Philippine Sea.

The USS Chancellorsville nearly collided with the Udaloy I DD 572 when it made an “unsafe maneuver”, coming within 50 to 100 feet, according to the Navy’s 7th Fleet in a statement

“This unsafe action forced Chancellorsville to execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid a collision,” said the Navy’s 7th Fleet in a statement.

Russian state media had claimed that the U.S. cruiser had “hindered the passage” of the Admiral Vinogradov anti-submarine destroyer about 160 feet in front of it, forcing them to perform a dangerous maneuver in the southeastern part of the East China Sea. But the U.S. dismissed their version of events as “propaganda.”
