The American destroyer USS John McCain crossed Russia's water border and entered the country's territorial waters in the Pacific Ocean for two kilometers.

The Russian Navy ship Admiral Vinogradov stopped further violations of Russian borders.

The large anti-submarine ship of the Pacific Fleet Admiral Vinogradov stopped the violation of Russia's state border by the US Navy destroyer John McCain in the Gulf of Peter the Great, RIA Novosti reports, referring to the ministry of defense.

The Russian ship reportedly warned the foreign destroyer against violating the border through the international communication channel, calling such actions unacceptable and warning about the readiness of a ramming maneuver to force the intruder out of Russia's territorial waters.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that the National interest, which mainly focuses on military topics, pointed to the advantages of Russia's amphibious tank destroyer Sprut-SD.
