Video shows Russian destroyer nearly colliding with U.S. warship

CBS News

A Russian destroyer nearly collided with an American guided-missile cruiser in the Philippine Sea, the U.S. Navy said on Friday, calling the incident “unsafe and unprofessional.”  The Russian Pacific Fleet, meanwhile, blamed the U.S. for the close encounter.

The U.S. Navy released an aerial photo and dramatic video of the incident. 

U.S. Seventh Fleet spokesman Commander Clayton Doss said a Russian destroyer came within 50 to 100 feet of the USS Chancellorsville, “putting the safety of her crew and ship at risk.” Doss said the U.S. ship was “on a steady course and speed when the Russian ship DD572 maneuvered from behind and to the right of” the American warship.
