Brink of World War 3: Russian ship threatens to RAM rival as chaos erupts at sea

The Russian Defence Ministry said at 6.17am local time, the USS John S. McCain, which entered the Sea of Japan several days ago, violated the country’s territorial waters, “passing the maritime border by two kilometres”. A statement from the ministry said crew aboard the Admiral Vinogradov vessel warned the US ship it would use a “ramming manoeuvre” if it did not quickly leave Russia’s territorial waters. But after the Admiral Vinogradov changed its course, the USS John S. McCain destroyer followed suit and returned to international waters.
