The US military has been monitoring a Russian warship since Friday, which is in close proximity to the exclusive economic zone of Hawaii. This is reported by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser with reference to the representative of the Indo-Pacific Command of the US armed forces, Major Rob Martins.
“The US command in the Indo-Pacific region is monitoring a Russian vessel operating in international waters off the Hawaiian Islands,” the military said.
Martins indicated that the daily tracking operations of all ships in the Indo-Pacific are carried out with the help of patrol aircraft and surface vessels.
In November 2021, Russia stepped up its surveillance of US ships in the Black Sea. According to Vladimir Komoedov, a retired admiral and former commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, American ships began to enter the Black Sea much more often, this was not the case even in Soviet times.
