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." The reply of the Caron was "I am engaged in innocent passage consistent with international law." 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." 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.
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

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.

Russia has a problem with all peoples. It's source is due to being a "nation" run by unaccountable leaders. Russia is run by a state_terror_system (NKVD, KGB, FSB & GRU controlled by the Chekist). It is a system of Revenge.These State_Terror groups are taught the following "Trust no one outside of Russia, trust no one inside Russia". In other words there are no Russian citizens (except in the phony Russian constitution). All Russians are Suspects. The fall of USSR in 1991 changed nothing. The Russian state blames the West for chaos in the 1990s. In fact it was a battle for power by Russian oligarchs and the state secret service, both of whom battled to capture the machinery of production & wealth. I live in a Western city with 100,000 Russian expats, and I speak with them. They will never go back to "Mother Russia". The state_terror_system in Russia goes back past the Tsarist time. After the 1917 "revolution" (terrorist take over of ruling class) the old Tsarist secret service was absorbed into the the new terror system. Chekist wield the actual power in Russia. They formed clans, and intermarry from generation to generation, passing on power to their children. Think of it as a successful implementation of what ISIS wants to achieve. After 1991 there was a brief period of about 18 months where Western scholars were allowed access to a few of the secret Stalin archives. Then access was cut off. Chekists are very good at manipulating the national myth-making machinery, not only in Russia but globally as well. Their influence is everywhere and since they create nothing of value to anyone outside their group they must constantly make inroads into other districts for ever more power & wealth. The Chekist appetite for for luxury items was accelerated when the West was allowed to export consumer goods into Russia at a time when oil was $110 per barrel. Unfortunately they also adopted the Internet which furthers their control of the populations within & without their border. Putin's annual news conference, where he lets the population call in with questions & requests is pure theater, designed to give the sheep a sense of security having a "strong_man" watching over them to keep the ship of state under a firm hand. A typical chekist operation is seen in Maria Butina, the Russian "gun-rights" advocate who sought to build ties with the NRA. There is no gun-rights in Russia and deluded NRA leadership was too smitten with Maria to even check that fact. But the checkists understand the influence the NRA has on American political policy and they milked it. In fact the NRA met with the _sanctioned_ Rogozin, He is one of the most virulent anti-American ministers in the Russian Government. If you meet a Russian gently ask them 1) What were your feelings when Western consumer goods were allowed to enter Russia? How about the variety & quality? How about the factories the West established inside Russia to produce consumer goods? But at this point the Putin_effect has taken hold.
Who am I? HUH?(rhetorical)..."look! ALL my ouraged crap matters! Yeah, well ver! We HAVE been jerks to Russia surrounding them w/free trade NATO brings into enhancing defense...LETS RAM EM!! We'll get a metal for this! Those good ol' Putin types aint to bad*
The captain of the US ship could have the crew collect all of its trash and when the Russian ship got along side the trash should have been dumped so it could have been sucked up into the Russian ships cooling
intake pipes to mess up its machinery which is cooled by sea water. This was the mistake by the US captain.
lmaoo i could imagine the russian caption yelling at his crew to go faster then when hit all shit themselves as their ship tips an have that oh fuck we are stuck look on their faces.. lol russian retarded dickheads lmaoo... the USA ship didn't even move or shake...
Outside of territorial and exclusive economic zone waters, all oceans are international waters. Just like airspace. I regularly see stories of Russian TU-160's flying within 12 nautical miles of the US border.
Actually, the US and Russia are part of a the Open Skies Treaty, which allows us to fly (unarmed) reconnaissance planes over each other's most sensitive military installations.
All this debate on whether it was intentional or an accident. The only people who will ever know is the people who were on the bridge of the Russian vessel. Honestly it doesn’t matter which it was, it was poor strategy, seamanship, and military command on BOTH sides. The Russians should’ve never got that close and the Americans should have never let them get that close. Steer away, plot a new course , slow down, speed up, whatever works. They were not at war in the physical sense and they put everyone’s lives in danger by doing this or letting it happen. Not to mention millions of dollars worth of military equipment. How would they have felt if one of the Harpoon missles in the back of the US boat had ignited and blown a hole in their ship or munitions magazine? Likewise if it had blown up the US boat? They would have started a war. And don’t get it twisted I’m all about war when it’s necessary and then it’s kill em all let god sort em out and stand your ground no matter what, but this was, at best, to try to prove a point. Prob much more of a dick measuring contest than anything. And for what? All the lives on board aren’t worth more than someone’s pride?
Russians were actually towing a water skier and did not have a proper spotter. Helmsman focused on water skier instead of where ship was headed and collided with picture taking Yankees. They should get a ticket.
The United States of America had the Iowa class battle ships still active back then. The should have set an Iowa class to make the crossing. I am sure the Russians would not have bumped one of those super thick vessels. It would have wrecked their destroyers. Russians and Americans are interesting. They are advisaries until they need to be allies. They will never attack each other. They just snarl at each other in a rather semi respectful manner. They are the big wolves in the pack. They will snarl at each other but not risk getting hurt by the other.
Design and fit directional boomsticks to the side. Doesn't necessarily need to go thru the hull lots of windows and electronics on top. It will be the aggressor causing detonation and damage to their own ship. It would be like saying here's some ordinance, wanna bite of this sandwich!? If they take a bite and lose some teeth, who's fault will that be? Those boats aren't toy's and while I don't condone violence. I don't condone bully's either. Only way to take out a bully is to stand your ground.
This is not a complete video. Russian ship picked up speed and flew nose on the deck of an American. Broke missiles and antenna on the American ship. Russia is a big egg. America is small eggs. Russians are wars. Americans are gay.
russia is tough it will bitch slap usa,,,, we know that in mexico were with you russia just dont launch icbm and kill mexicans were too near usa, relax russian bear.....russia if you do attack usa give us half our territory we lost and call us russians....usa is a stinking turd
Bastard yenkees! Born on the genocide of natives.the only country dropping an atomic bomb over civilians, and still no calling as a war criminal the bastatds president who made that. 55milion people killed AFTER the 2ww (figures not by a Russian but by the American Chomsky). From Vietnam to Iraq Syria libia still in charge killing stealing raping. The most criminal country in the history of humanity
Obama was President he probably called Putin and said sorry for making you have to Ram our ship here's a pallet full of cash that make it better now that trumps president let him Ram our ship will sink their ship
+Eric Tesson you can't offend me, its been tried, unsuccessfully. Like I said i was just responding to the original post and when you are posting onto a site that has over 4 million hits, you might want to scan before you hit send. Oh, and I have a life, thank you very much.
When you don't have much time and you're really busy at work and you're talking into a speaker sometimes it doesn't come out just the way you like it so I'm sorry if I offended you for not proper grammar get a life
+Eric Tesson if you did so well in school, then you would've phrased your statement properly. You are making a statement that Obama was President, not saying "if". I can only work with what I see. My political affiliation has nothing to do with my ability to read your statement and respond to it.
I was referring to if Obama was President that's what would have happened a****** I did very well in history thank you I don't need some more on search it through looking for discrepancies to attack people you must be a libtard
You Americans need to tune down. Have some respect for Russian and others. You meddling in the middle East is the reason why you have so many muslims fu**ing you in your house. Don't barge into someone's house and try to democratize their arse or they'll simply return the favor.
Disgusting music with a very sober incident. Shame, shame. Interesting blog though. Communist countries have violated laws in international waters before, and no doubt will again. It's what control freaks do! China has done it in the South China Sea, and the Russians have terrorized American vessels before, so has No. Korea. Often it looks like they're just itching to start another world war, which would be horrendous! Japan learned in WWII not to awaken the sleeping giant, others would do well to heed that lesson also!
What would’ve been funny is if the American destroyer had waited until the Russian ship got close enough to touch! Then stalled it’s engine to bees even with the Russian Troehler and at that point have 50 Americans jump the ship with machine guns and take it. Then Scuttle the Russian boat.” Set the crew on a beach with a cell phone and say later.
I doubt very much it was inside U.S 12 mile territorial waters. The article says it was 30 miles out....so that is International waters
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....
A trigger is a named PL/SQL unit that is stored in the database and executed ( fired ) in response to a specified event that occurs in the database.
Overview of Triggers.
A trigger is a named program unit that is stored in the database and fired (executed) in response to a specified event. The specified event is associated with either a table, a view, a schema, or the database, and it is one of the following:
A database manipulation (DML) statement ( DELETE , INSERT , or UPDATE )
A database definition (DDL) statement ( CREATE , ALTER , or DROP )
A database operation ( SERVERERROR , LOGON , LOGOFF , STARTUP , or SHUTDOWN )
The trigger is said to be defined on the table, view, schema, or database.
A DML trigger is fired by a DML statement, a DDL trigger is fired by a DDL statement, a DELETE trigger is fired by a DELETE statement, and so on.
An INSTEAD OF trigger is a DML trigger that is defined on a view (not a table). The database fires the INSTEAD OF trigger instead of executing the triggering DML statement. For more information, see Modifying Complex Views (INSTEAD OF Triggers).
A system trigger is defined on a schema or the database. A trigger defined on a schema fires for each event associated with the owner of the schema (the current user). A trigger defined on a database fires for each event associated with all users.
A simple trigger can fire at exactly one of the following timing points :
Before the triggering statement executes.
After the triggering statement executes.
Before each row that the triggering statement affects.
After each row that the triggering statement affects.
A compound trigger can fire at more than one timing point. Compound triggers make it easier to program an approach where you want the actions you implement for the various timing points to share common data. For more information, see Compound Triggers.
