The USS Ross, an Arleigh-Burke class Destroyer in the US Navy, is approaching the southwest coast of Crimea RIGHT NOW 11:13 PM EDT --
Automated Identification System (AIS) is showing the vessel intentionally approaching the territorial waters of RUSSIA, which the US, UK and France claim are the territorial waters of Ukraine.
Not certain what response Russia will make, but it appears, the very real fears of a direct military confrontation between Russia and NATO may be developing right this minute!
The USS Ross reduced speed from 24 knots to 6 knots, and abruptly turned right to head AWAY from Russian waters.
Dangerous game being played. Stupid, too.
