USS Caron getting rammed by the Russians in the Black Sea - Feb 1988

9303 ratings | 4149818 views
In February 1988, Caron operating with Yorktown, entered Soviet 7 miles ) territorial waters limit in the Black Sea off the Crimean Peninsula. Under international law, this act could be permissible if the ship was progressing from one point in international waters to another point in international waters via the shortest course possible, but according to the Soviet Union, it was the right of the USSR to authorize or prohibit travel in selected areas within the 12 mile limit. The United States however did not recognize the Soviet's claim in this case. To prevent it from becoming accepted precedent, the US Navy claimed that it had sailed warships through such areas at regular intervals in the past, which we had, not just two years prior. On this occasion, Caron had onboard a ships signal exploitation spaces system, operated by a crew of 18 in support of the U.S. National Security Agency. This system was capable of recording data on Soviet defense radars and communications. In response, the Soviets deployed a destroyer and a Mirka II class light frigate as well as a KGB and "civilian" ships to intercept the U.S. ships. Several times, Soviet vessels obtained radar "lock" on the Caron and Yorktown. Both American ships maintained a constant course and speed throughout the incident. Eventually, the Soviets lightly rammed both ships. No significant damage resulted to any of the ships involved. Both US warships sent an account of the incident to the Commander in Chief of United States Naval Forces in Europe. The Caron reported at 13:20 local time, it was informed on channel 16 VHF by the Bezzavetny: "Soviet ships have orders to prevent violation of territorial waters, extreme measure is to strike your ship with one of ours."[1] The reply of the Caron was "I am engaged in innocent passage consistent with international law."[1] The Yorktown, in its report stated that on 9:56, local time, it was contacted by the Bezzavetny via channel 16 and told to leave Soviet territorial waters or "our ship is going to strike on yours."[1] Then, according to the report, the Bezzavetny came alongside port side of the Yorktown at 10:03 and bumped it by turning into the ship.[1] As for the music, take note that this was shot on VHS and back in 1988, when we did not have Youtube. The only people we thought would see this was friends and family, not a bunch of people from all over the world. No the music is not masking the screams from the crew on the USS Caron, so if you don't like it, there is a volume button - use it Also check out the video from the USS Yorktown at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SME4w037FgA This is the video that the Russian news showed on the 10th Anniversary - All I can say is I can't believe that the Russian people believed and animated version of what happened over the real tape. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dl_WNdiShs&list=FLq9THf99pIznRTXM7P8JIWw&index=54 Also the video the Russians did on the 25th anniversary - They asked me for an interview and I declined for the very reason I that I knew they would not portray it accurately and they didn't let me down http://www.tvc.ru/showspecrep.aspx?id=e1564dbe-d8e8-4ba2-a142-218db8a6e14c Here is the Russians account of what happened http://fishki.net/19391-stalnye-jajca-sovetskogo-flota-9-foto--3-video.html

Ohh.... so you say the Black Sea.....sorry, must have misunderstood. I could have sworn the Black Sea was an isolated inland sea, sitting squarely in the backyard of Eastern Europe, bordering Russia directly, accessed only through the Bosporus Straits and containing Sevastopol, still home to the 'Russian Black Sea Fleet'....hmmmm...either my geography is shithouse or these US boys are a little far from home in Europe!!! and kinda asking for trouble being in the Black Sea, bit like the Gulf of Tonkin. Still happening to this day. The US navy has no place being in the Black Sea other than to stir shit and agitate and they are now rebuilding and building up the Romanian naval facilities at the sea port of Constanta so they can have a more permanent presence there. Only one aggressor and provocateur who poses the greatest danger of triggering the next World War and its not Russia or China...notice they kinda for the most part stay in their own backyards....

Was a friendly way of the Russians telling us to leave their territorial waters. We play the same games with China, and we would be at war if that vile pig Clinton had been installed. Leave the bear alone, the beast is not to be taken lightly and does not war with us.

30 years later... The Russians are working their way to restore their glorious empire...placing Europe in danger of becoming battlefield. Meanwhile, China developed stronger relations with Russia due to their common goal: to restore their empires through unity. The westerns saw China and Russia as aggressors due to their aggressive actions against small countries including Ukraine and Taiwan. Will United Nation advert the potential Third World War? Or plague ourselves into the new dark age similar to Great Depression?

This could be considered an act of war, or at least piracy. The US ship could've defended itself (assuming it was armed.) I suppose the United States wanted to maintain the moral high-ground though.

What people don't know is this was not intentional. When ships draw that close to each other they will get sucked in as you can see in this example here. The Russian ship was damaged while the United States ship barely had a scratch. How misinformed people are amazes me.
Luke Weehuizen (1 month ago)
lol, they were within Russian waters in a US warship which held onboard Radar and Communications probing equipment likely being used on the Russians - even if you did this today (let alone the cold war) i would take it as a provocation. But hey, its not like they Russians displayed much better by ramming the Americans. I.E kids, we see both sides were doing stupid things which resulted in a stupid and completely avoidable situation - basically a synopsis of the entire cold war.

No, no, no ... Imagine that a bad guy is trying to rape your wife and you beat him in the face. And you are just both kids??? Not! You punish the aggressor! You punish the bastard! And you are right! But he is not! and rightly snaps off! Do not equate the aggressor and the just avenger.

more from the 1492 junk nation, this 1492. genocidal enterprise, which gave us the realm called the USA, murder nation from the start. and the so called american people which are nothing more than slaves and hungry lowland pilgrims, send to commit genocide on the name of capitalism. same happened in AFRIKA when 10 million africans were slaughtered in the congo, while the good pilgrims slaughter 60. millions of real American natives.

The American Navy goes where it wants to. Nothing more than a flea. The Russians know that life will be short, and sweet in a confrontation. When carriers show up...folks pay attention. America has enormous resources at her disposal in any thing the Russians would attempt. I would not be surprised if this is a Trump trying to start something.
