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
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.
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
Here is the Russians account of what happened
Always wonder what kind of shit we did to the Russian Navy. This was a piss poor attempt by the Russians, coarse it is most of the time with Russians, I mean, it must be tough to watch the largest and most powerful Navy in history control the sea lanes.
Американцы могут лишь бомбардировать мирные городка с мирными жителями, с неопасного расстояния)) А будто лишь сталкиваются с отпором их наглости писают в брюки))) Только США использовали ядерное орудие против мирных обитателей Японии. Они ответят за всё.
@Asya Tsvet Пойдите трахают себя Иван.. Я был расположен на Caron, когда это случилось. Последняя предмет, которой мы были, была испугана hahahaha. Та доля дерьма древняя русская ладья береговой охраны эпохи не была никаким состязанием для нас немая пятая точка... Лучше итого признайте дерьмо падения, мы являемся большими, самыми смертельными и испытали Военно-морскую силу в мире... Ваш гребаный флот находится в, волочит ноги и принадлежит на радостном параде гордости, и большая часть времени даже не управляет верно интеллектуально отсталым..... Вопрос факта мы кидали орешки и болты в этой лодке ряда..... Ха Ха будто сейчас! так как было тогда, так как мы скажем, съедим дерьмо и умрем коммунистический индюк петушка .... .......
People make fun of Russian small ship here, they think that this is the Soviet Navy. But I want to upset you, this is a coast guard ship. If the real ship of the Soviet Navy with anti-ship missiles arrived to you, the Yankees would crap their pants and leave home. In reality, this ship could have been sunk several times, at least by anti-ship systems located on the coast, they have a huge radius.
@Gabriel S. This would be a problem if the Russian fleet were as offensive as the United States and its aircraft carriers. The Russian fleet, though much weaker than the US fleet, is intended only to protect the country. For something more he simply does not have enough strength. In rare cases, Russia may deploy a pair of ships with cruise missiles for some anti-terrorist operation in Syria. What the US really should fear is the Russian submarine fleet. The US will be very sad to lose their expensive aircraft carriers from much cheaper cruise / ballistic anti-ship missiles. The aircraft carrier group has a very decent defense, but even it is not enough from a massive attack with a multitude of anti-ship missiles paired with submarines.
Lambdadelta Russia can have the best navy in the world but it won't matter because all the russian ports that don't freeze over in winter are only accessible by sailing through nato held water. this is a major problem for russia and they know it.
Rammed ? No . A smaller ship hug you !. 90° attack , that you can call rammed. Only scrapped. American cry babies....
Your Coast Guard ships always did that to others !
What is a US ships,a thousand miles from home doing in Russian waters ? This is an aggressor act. Just go home and guard your shores !
Ha, it was surreal for sure, our Skipper wanted to sink them and was being told the Skipper of this row boat was drunk and hated America.....Our Skipper trained the aft 5/54 on him and relayed he was authorized to use lethal force to protect the crew and Vessel..Ivan peeled off and just followed after then fact.....What is even more hilarious is the Russian Skipper kept telling the Kremlin he had disabled us by ramming.......Our Vessel was well known to the Soviet Navy as we were the first American War Vessel to enter the Black sea in 1982 which brought out the bad ass Krevak cruisers...Had a blast on the Caron, great crew.....We were also the ship that shot the Tomahawk at Qaddafi blowing his camp to shit and we were the ones who made the first shot in Grenada blowing up the radio tower cutting off coms to Cuba and the Soviet Union......Lots of history...Panama, Beirut, Falklands, Bosnia and on and on............
@Rick Oliver Yes but we are not talking about mutual capacity then and now, but the real war games in act among the two, skirmish that never brought to a real war, thanks God and good sense on both sides.
@januainferni You must remember that Russian technology was quite behind US technology at the time , but ever since the end of the USSR , the Russian Federation has gained in leaps and bounds , to now be the leader . The world is now buying their armament , even the US used the Russian space rockets to further their exploration into space , until now , that the US can call upon other nations for space travel .
Typical Russians oblivious to realty. Their current dictator is trying to revive cold war....with smaller armed services , killing anyone opposed to current dictator, threatening same old crap from those dictators charge....
*" My logic was fine"*
"I still love the image of the US sailors.... pursuing Russians"
Logic to see how Russians pursuing and rammed into US ship.... LOL!!!
Unwillingness to understand it is actually YOUR problem. Because you have problem with logic.
And who is a troll?
A troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion, whether for the troll's amusement or a specific gain.
WoW!!! You are talking about yourself....
These situations can be avoided, if you are going to in Russian waters or airspace just give them a heads up. When you enter another's space , and they dont challenge you , you will keep getting closer and closer. Look at it the other way , Russia has a ship inside of US waters , now what ?
Respect others space as you want them to respect your space.
US navy and NATO tried to strike Syria
They asked Russians for permission and said that will not strike any Russian installations >
They launched 107 missiles and destroyed 2 barns in middle of nowhere and 3 pharmaceutical buildings just 300 - 400 meters away from civilian buildings
And........ you have NO PROVE
The reason why the Russians do not come to the Gulf of Mexico is cuz they cannot support their ships there and yes they allowed in the Gulf of Mexico and Russian war ships vist Cuba all the time and also Russia has subs that have been caught trying to get into the Chesapeake bay witch is where the biggest navel base in the world is located I've been on a cruise ship in us waters and seen 2 Russian warships did not see any us navy ship ramming them the Russian seem so darn paranoid usa is not out to get Russia or any other peaceful country I wonder what Russia would have done if they had a 911 on there territory
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.
