Feels like the Good Old Brezhnev/Andropov days

I saw that “New Coke” is back and the music of Queen is more popular than ever, but the whole reboot of the 1980s seems to be getting a little extreme.

So this happened, from the USN 7th Fleet PAO:

190607-N-NO101-001 PHILIPPINE SEA (June 7, 2019) The U.S. Navy cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62), right, is forced to maneuver to avoid a collision from the approaching Russian destroyer Udaloy I (DD 572), closing to approximately 50-100 feet putting the safety of her crew and ship at risk. (U.S. Navy photo/Released)

At approximately 11:45 am on June 7, 2019, while operating in the Philippine Sea, a Russian Destroyer (UDALOY I DD 572) made an unsafe maneuver against guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG-62), closing to approximately 50-100 feet putting the safety of her crew and ship at risk.

While USS Chancellorsville was recovering its helicopter on a steady course and speed when the Russian ship DD572 maneuvered from behind and to the right of Chancellorsville accelerated and closed to an unsafe distance of approximately 50-100 feet. This unsafe action forced USS Chancellorsville to execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid a collision.

We consider Russia’s actions during this interaction as unsafe and unprofessional and not in accordance with the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS), “Rules of the Road,” and internationally recognized maritime customs.
