There is a Newsweek report of Russian vessels engaged in exercises disrupting fishing in the US EEZ.
“Three warships and two support vessels of theirs were coming and would not turn,” Elliott said from aboard the Vesteraalen. “And they came marching right through the fleet.”
This was in International Waters so it is not that the Russian vessels were violating international law by their presence. They may have violated the “nautical rules of the road”, but that is not clear. Certainly there was no reason to choose the waters for the exercise that they did, other than muscle flexing. It is not a choice a good neighbor would have made.
The fishermen also seemed to feel they had not been informed the Russians were going to be there. “We were caught by surprise” Perhaps we might have done more about that.
