For 450 years, no one knew where the Swedish warship Mars, named for the Roman god of war, sank in the Baltic Sea. The largest vessel of its time went down in a fierce battle in 1564 with more than 800 people aboard. Its discovery in 2011 yielded an astonishingly well-preserved ship, including the seamen who went down with it. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Most of the Turku Baltic Sea Days activities were linked to meetings and presentations in the main venue - the cultural centre Logomo, but besides those official EUSBSR events there were also possibilities for citizens to learn more about the Baltic Sea through cultural events and e.g. to visit the Finnish marine research vessel Aranda that stayed in the Aura river for one day. Aranda is an important tool for marine research in the Baltic Sea. Kai Myrberg has been on board since the vessel was taken into service 25 years ago, meaning he has a long time perspective of the conditions in the sea ...

THIS 200ft wide object 300ft below the Baltic, with its ‘staircase leading to a dark hole’, has baffled oceanographers since its discovery in 2012. Dubbed the “Baltic Sea Anomaly”, the structure looks like the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars. It was discovered five years ago by Swedish treasure hunters, Ocean X team, led by Peter Lindberg, its captain, and his co-researcher Dennis Asberg, The Sun reports. They used a side-scan sonar and found something strange 91 metres below the surface of the water.

They were exploring in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Finland, looking for sunken treasures when a very unusual image suddenly appeared on the sonar. A 197ft diameter cylindrical object was discovered at the depth of approximately 275 feet, something they had never seen before. In this documentary special, we follow the treasure hunters and their crew on their expedition to reveal what could be the most extraordinary discovery in deep sea ever. We share the tension, the excitement and the nervousness that threats – both known and unknown – may be enforced. There is reason to believe that their ship is under surveillance. Using advanced equipment - ROW cameras, sonar pictures and human divers, we discover that the findings really are something very strange and incredibly unique.

SVITZER Salvage tug SYGIN on station at Land's End approaches the injured vessel and seeks to make a towage connection. The heavy swell makes it impossible and the vessel runs aground near Plymouth. A Salvage Team with specialised equipment is mobilised from the Netherlands. The storm makes boarding only possible by helicopter. With assistance from the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency all equipment and specialists are transferred to the vessel. Preparation is made and on 16 February the re-float is successfully accomplished. The KODIMA is safely returned to her owners in Falmouth.

In the Perkunas campaign Sea Shepherd Germany patrolled several protected areas in the Baltic Sea between April and June. The crew of the MV Emanuel Bronner monitored fishing gear to expose the major threat for the critically endangered harbor porpoises: being caught and drowned accidentally in gillnets (also known as “bycatch”). With only 500 animals left, the Baltic harbor porpoise population doesn’t have much time left. For decades scientists have agreed that gillnets pose the major threat to the porpoises in the Baltic Sea due to the high risk of being killed as bycatch. Still, this fishing gear is permitted even in Marine Protected Areas. It's time to take action before it's too late!

New clothing line! https://shop.spreadshirt.com/finesthq/ The Baltic Sea claimed 852 people's lives by drowning and freezing them to death in the 8 degree C cold water. Only 95 bodies were ever recovered. The wreck of the Estonia was not salvaged, but sealed, covered in sand and declared an official burial ground. The 150 metre long Estonia left the Estonian capital Tallin and sailed into a raging Baltic Sea. Unlike the other car ferries on the route, the Estonia ran at full speed into waves more than 15 meters tall. Six hours into the voyage, she sank to a depth of more than 75 metres. The first sign of danger was the sound of metal scraping against metal. The sound was caused by the weakly constructed locks on the bow visor breaking under the strain of the waves. The visor eventually broke off of the ship, uncovering the opening to the car deck behind. Water rushed in and destabilised the ship, starting a catastrophic chain of events that brought the ship down. Without warning, the vessel lurched some 20 degrees to starboard, and would continue to tilt to 90 degrees. Passengers were in danger of getting crushed under falling equipment. At such an angle, it was all but impossible to move around. Those who were going to survive had already reached the deck. Tragically, by then most of the lifeboats could not be released due to sideways tilt of the ship. Soon, the ferry slipped beneath the waves into a watery grave. The Estonia disaster occurred on Wednesday, 28 September 1994, between about 00:55 to 01:50.

In 2018 Sea Shepherd returns to the Baltic Sea with the patrol vessel MV Emanuel Bronner. The north-eastern harbor porpoise population is critically endangered. Bycatch in Bottom Set Gillnets or so-called Semi Driftnets is the major threat to the animals. Still, gillnet fishing is permitted even in Marine Protected Areas. Sea Shepherd demands a ban on destructive fishing methods in areas that are essential for the survival of the harbor porpoise. Time is running out. With only 500 animals left, not more than two can be killed as bycatch annually for the species to survive.

Russian military fighter jets flew dangerously close to US Naval Destroyer USS Donald Cook on Monday, April 11th, 2016. As the US Navy vessel was leaving the nothern Poland port of Gdynia, approaching the Kaliningrad Oblast (which is not a part of mainland Russia, but is part of the Russian Federation) the Russian jets and one helicopter did a series of about 30 passes by the Naval Destroyer. One of the passes was so low to the water's surface, that it actually created a wake in the water. The maneuvers are currently seen as the most provocative since the Cold War days. The maneuvers are also seen as a show of aggression, but not necessarily a sign of aggression. Meaning, there doesn't seem to be any immediate threat, but they do appear to be sending a warning. USS Donald Cook was in international waters at the time, but they were very close to Russian territory, about 70 nautical miles to be exact. The Russian Federation could simply be sending a "back off" message with it's military, or it could simply be a show of strength and force. Possibly even testing the US military to see how they would react. There have been other instances of similar things happening between the US and Russia, but nothing to this magnitude in recent years. Monday's incident has also been compared to the Iranian territorial waters incident when smaller Naval boats were seized by the Iranian national guard after allegedly running aground Farsi Island in the Persian gulf, during a trip from Bahran to Kuwait. Although not the same, as no one on the USS Donald Cook was contacted at all by the Russians, one thing's for sure, this won't be the last time we see acts of aggression or strong-man posturing from the world's leading nations against one another. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– If you want to support me to continue to crank out these videos, please visit my website http://www.anthonyblogan.com/contact/ and click on that donate button for me! –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– You can catch me micro-blogging on a near 24/7basis on my social media platforms: http://www.twitter.com/anthonyblogan http://www.facebook.com/lcs.flyers Please take a moment and subscribe to my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/aloge?sub_confirmation=1 Stay tuned to my website http://www.anthonyblogan.com for more updates as they come in! –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Russian Attack Jets Aggressively Fly Over U.S. Destroyer USS Donald Cook in The Baltic Sea http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/russian-attack-jets-aggressively-fly-over-u-s-destroye-1770792698 Russian fighter jets get close to U.S. destroyer http://edition.cnn.com/2016/04/13/politics/russian-fighter-jet-us-destroyer/index.html What it looks like when Russian attack jets fly ‘dangerously close’ to a Navy ship https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/04/13/russian-air-force-buzzed-u-s-navy-destroyer-repeatedly-in-baltic-sea/ This is why the Navy didn't shoot down Russian jets http://www.navytimes.com/story/military/2016/04/13/why-navy-didnt-shoot-down-russian-jets/83000858/ Russian attack aircraft just flew within 30 feet of a U.S. Navy ship http://www.militarytimes.com/story/military/2016/04/13/russian-su-24-attack-aircraft-us-navy-destroyer-donald-cook-baltic-sea/82979184/

These two Russian Navy vessels are facing off against each other in a tense competition to win in a military exercise. Pick your side! Russian Navy fleet corvette Soobrazitelny gets a new commander, captain lieutenant Aleksandr Slonov. Immediately, there are tensions between him and one of the ship’s junior lieutenants, Leonid Karakash. However, Slonov is determined to make Karakash change his ways. Meanwhile, the rest of the corvette’s crew begins preparation for a military exercise. They are to compete against the Magnitogorsk submarine under the command of Vladimir Nagornov and his crew. They only have 20 days to properly prepare. But first, the corvette’s new sailors must be initiated. Russia’s Baltic Fleet was formed in 1703 under Peter the Great and is the oldest formation in the Russian Navy. Throughout its history, it has fought in many military conflicts, defending its country’s borders and perfecting its battle techniques. Today it boasts the most modern vessels, formidable weaponry and experienced seamen the Russian Navy has to offer. Meet the crews of two of its vessels, the corvette Soobrazitelny and the submarine Magnitogorsk, to learn more about life in the Baltic Fleet. Joining the crew of Magnitogorsk, commanded by Captain Vladimir Nagornov, you'll find out about the procedures required for diving and surfacing, as well as certain superstitions shared by those on board. You'll also learn about the jobs required to keep the boat operational, how a submarine locates its targets covertly and discover more about the torpedoes it carries. Aleksandr Slonov, Commander of Soobrazitelny, and his crew will take you along to a military parade, give you a guided tour of the ship and explain how the corvette's missiles are launched. With marines joining its ranks, you'll get the opportunity to accompany them to an armoured vehicle test track, where you can pick up some tips about how to handle these impressively versatile vehicles. In the end, the two crews will engage in a competition to determine which of them is the best-prepared and most skilled in military combat. Pick your side and may the best team win.

LATVIAN BOAT LOST AT SEA (Partial transcript) It seems unlikely that the crew of the boat Kaupo had taken ashore on some island; it is more probable that they were the victims of a sudden mishap, according to experienced sailors... how is it possible that modern shipping observational systems did not see the craft?, here is our correspondent: ----- the monitors in the Marine and Coast Guard observatories can see every vessel in the Baltic Sea, its coordinates and name. This global monitoring system does not see the Kaupo. ---------- (RL) the system is required on vessels exceeding 300 tons brutto, in other words for commercial vessels... leisure and pleasure craft do not usually have the system, and hence, the yachts registered here in Latvia to not have this system installed --------- (corr) although the crew did have a satellite telephone, it had become wet and useless. Coast Guard monitors also register every SOS call in the world, ----- you can see it here, exactly these dots, the deployed buoys in the world... today also, on January 26, a buoy was deployed in the Indian Ocean, but that was a Panamá registered vessel. ---- however, no distress signal was received from the global travelers, even though they did have two emergency transmitter devices onboard the catamaran. Both sailors and rescuers agree that the boys are treated with nonchalance in many cases and are stored somewhere on board instead of mounted on the hull as designated. ----------- So in case the vessel sinks, the transmitter is deployed to the surface automatically... and if it's deployed inside the vessel, the transmitter will activate underwater and there will be no signal. --------- (ROL. MILLERS) if there was an accident it must have happened very suddenly, if there had been anytime, they would have deployed these manually, they would have activated one of these buoys by hand, it's most likely that there were sailing downwind, I mean you have to be careful, the waves are big and catamaran's are sensitive you can capsize forward over the bow...

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.

An Ancient Computer Recovered in the early 1900s by Greek divers, the Antikythera mechanism was found inside a Roman shipwreck near the Greek island of the same name. It is believed to the earliest form of a computer that is at least 2,000 years old. This complex clock-like device was used by ancient Greeks to calculate the movement of the stars and planets. The mechanism was composed of at least 30 different bronze gears and the whole thing was housed in a wooden frame that was decorated with thousands of characters. As so much of this period of history's technology has been lost, such advanced use of technology did not reappear in European historical artifacts until the 14th Century. It is now on display at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. The history of this device is shrouded in mystery. It is unclear how this intricate device ended up in the hands of Romans, but some believe the ill-fated ship was transferring a woman of importance to be married in Rome. The mechanism, among other impressive riches on board, may have been a wedding gift from her family. 8. Baltic Sea Anomaly The Baltic Sea Anomaly was accidently discovered by a team of diving experts and treasure hunters from the Ocean X Team in 2011. The divers found a circular object with a diameter of about 160 feet that appeared in a sonar image as it sat on the sea bottom. It looks like the “Millennium Falcon” from “Star Wars”, and has an architectural structure similar to Stonehenge in Britain. Oddly enough, all of the divers’ electrical equipment stopped functioning within 650 feet of the entity and it emits a strong radio signal. Some say it could be a pre-Ice Age artifact or a German anti-submarine device. A long track seems to lead towards the thing which makes people think it is some kind of landing strip. The Swedes finally managed to organize an expedition finally in 2012. The very first shots of the object at close range showed that it is unlikely it had ever flown. It seems that it is not a “flying saucer”, but rather a kind of construction. The most probable theory was provided by Volker Bryuherta from Stockholm University. According to him, it’s just a rock. Since the Baltic Sea came under the influence of melting glaciers, these rocks probably formed at the same time. But this does not explain why satellite phones and cameras stop working near this “rock”. Though various scientists have offered innumerable suggestions about the entity’s origins, the Baltic Sea anomaly still remains one of the unsolved intrigues and ocean mysteries of the world. 7. The Bimini Road The Bimini Road, sometimes called the Bimini Wall, is an underwater rock formation near North Bimini island in the Bahamas. Researchers, geologists, archaeologists, and scientists alike have visited and studied the huge, flat stones off the coast of Bimini, known as the Bimini Road . They have tried for years to discern whether the limestone blocks are a natural phenomenon, or evidence of an ancient lost civilization. About 20 feet down in the clear blue water, is a stone path. Most people think it's a road made up of limestone blocks that's about half a mile long, but no one knows where it goes or what its purpose might have been. The stone blocks are huge and some are about 13 feet long. An American expedition in 2004 discovered a second and third layer of stone blocks which also suggests a wall of some sort although they weren't able to get to the bottom. Some people think that this might be proof of the location for the lost city of Atlantis. 6. Emeralds Amateur diver and treasure hunter Jay Miscovish walked into a bar in Key West and bought a treasure map from a diver friend at a bar in 2010. He went on to discover more than 10,000 emeralds off the coast of Florida, making it one of the largest discoveries of sunken treasure in history. His company claimed that they had found over 154 pounds of emeralds, amethysts, and other stones lying on the ocean floor. Journalists from CBS news when to interview him and he poured out a laundry basked full of emeralds and told them that they likely came from an ancient shipwreck. The story earned him mass media attention but he refused to give out more information about the map and the man who had sold it to him, claiming he had paid him $50,000 to give up all rights to the treasure.

Between September 2017 and the summer of 2018, our modern subsea-support vessel, VOS Star, supported longstanding client SeaTerra GmbH on its geophysical survey projects in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. These surveys were conducted using a remote operated vehicle (ROV), in the context of seabed preparation prior to construction of a windpark and a gas pipeline. The subsequent data interpretation led to identification of potentially unexploded ordnance. These were then investigated further and cleared, with the assistance of remote-controlled devices (ROV, airlift), cranes and ordnance divers. This video footage, courtesy of SeaTerra, provides a unique insight into both shipboard and subsea operations performed by the Vroon and SeaTerra teams. During the period of intense joint operations, a very solid teamwork spirit developed, resulting in the surveys being performed in a safe, efficient and effective manner.

Container ship carrying 2,000 cars, including 37 Porsches, worth millions of dollars sinks off the coast of France. An Italian container ship bound for Brazil while carrying some 2,000 cars including some three dozen Porsches caught fire and sank in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of France last week. All 27 crew members aboard were rescued by the British military, though French authorities quickly began to clean up an oil spill caused as a result of the sinking. The vessel ran aground on March 12 about 150 nautical miles southwest of Brest, France, at a depth of 15,000 feet beneath the surface of the ocean. German automaker Porsche confirmed on Tuesday that the doomed vessel was carrying four models of the 911 GT2 RS. Production of this specific model ended last February, but Porsche will manufacture a few more to make up for the lost shipment, according to Carscoops. Each vehicle carries a retail price of about $293,200. The Stuttgart-based company wrote a letter to its Brazilian customers informing them that they would reproduce the model especially for them. ‘We are sorry to inform you that, due to a fire, a Grimaldi group ship, that was transporting your vehicle, sank on March 12, 2019,’ the company wrote to its customers. ‘And for that reason, your GT2 RS can not be delivered. ‘As you may know, Porsche ended the 911 GT2 RS production on February 2019 and under normal circumstances, it wouldn’t be possible to give you another car. ‘But, due to the nature of the situation, and considering that you’re a loyal and highly valuable customer for our brand, Porsche has decided to resume the GT2 RS production in Germany, and your vehicle will be produced in April, with delivery scheduled for June. ‘We recommend that you contact your local Porsche Center for further information.’ In addition to the 911 GT2 RS, Porsche had a number of other models that were lost at sea. They include 718 Caymans, Boxters, and Cayennes. In total, there were 37 Porsches aboard the Grande America. Another European car maker, Audi, lost a number of its vehicles in the shipment, including the Audi A3, A5, RS4, RS5, and Q7 models. A crew of 27 were saved from the Grande America on March 11 as it was engulfed in flames after a Royal Navy vessel moved in to rescue them from 150 miles away. It took sailors on HMS Argyll just eight hours to save every person aboard the 28,000-ton merchant ship in the Bay of Biscay after the ship’s cargo of containers and cars caught fire. The crew aboard the Grande America merchant ship had been trying to fight the flames but were forced to abandon it, climbing into their lifeboat despite the 5m to 6m swirls in the sea at night. The lifeboat’s engine had been damaged, which left it unable to move away from the flames leaving the crew ‘bobbing around like a cork in a bathtub.’ On receiving a mayday message, the Argyll moved 150 miles through difficult sea conditions to launch their small sea boat, which was used to nudge the lifeboat against the safety of the frigate so the crew could be lifted to safety one-by-one. Lieutenant Commander Dave Tetchner, from HMS Argyll, said: ‘It was pretty awful for them – they’d had to fight a fire in dreadful seas. ‘Every one of them suffered smoke inhalation. Then they faced the prospect of abandoning ship and then their lifeboat failed. It was pretty awful all round and they were shocked. ‘You see container ships like this every day when you’re sailing around the world. What you do not see is one in flames – it was a dreadful sight.’ The 27 sailors rescued were then taken to the French port of Brest and while there were no life-threatening injuries, some required hospital treatment. The frigate had been returning to Plymouth after nine months in the Asia-Pacific region working with allies overseas. The MV Grande America was still aflame when Argyll left the merchant ship around 5am. The Italian-registered vessel had been bound for Casablanca from Hamburg when the fire broke out at 8pm on March 10. Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said: ‘HMS Argyll’s swift and selfless response to very dangerous situation in difficult conditions undoubtedly saved 27 lives. I commend her crew.

Baltika is an icebreaking multipurpose emergency and rescue vessel for the Russian Ministry of Transport. This innovative icebreaker for oil spill response and rescue operations represents a completely new type of multipurpose icebreaking vessels. The vessel features a patented oblique design with asymmetric hull and three azimuthing propulsors, which allow the vessel to operate efficiently ahead, astern and obliquely (sideways). The vessel is intended to perform icebreaking operations in harbors and adjacent water areas, to tow distressed vessels and facilities to protective places, and to perform sea towing of vessels and floating facilities. The vessel is provided with special equipment for oil and petroleum products spill contingency response, fire extinguishing of external fires, environmental monitoring, rendering assistance to vessels and performing salvage and rescue operations. The vessel has an advanced oil recovery system suitable for operation even in heavy waves. The vertical side of the hull is utilized as a sweep arm, and when the vessel moves ahead obliquely through oil slick, the oily water will be guided through a hatch in the hull to skimmer tank. The skimmer tank has built in brush collectors, which separate the oil from the water. The hull form has specially been designed and tested for ice navigation. The vessel can proceed in 1.0 m thick level ice both ahead and astern and in oblique mode she will be able to generate 50 m wide channel in 60 cm level ice. The concept of the vessel is based on the AKER ARC 100 design by Aker Arctic Technology Inc. The machinery principle is based on diesel-electric machinery, with triple azimuthing type rudder propeller units for steering and propulsion. The electric power plant consists of three main diesel generator sets with a total power of 9,0 MW. The diesel engines will be capable to operate with low sulfur fuel oil. The vessel has a helideck for helicopter landing and take-off. Dimensions of the helideck will enable operation with a Ka 32 type helicopter. There is also one workboat for oil boom handling. A knuckle boom type offshore crane with a capacity of 25 tonnes is installed on the cargo deck for moving of loads, handling of the workboat and for oil spill response functions.

The aerobatics skills of Russian pilots over the US destroyer Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea left the Pentagon and other US official running for cover in Washington over “aggressive close interactions” with Russian fighters jets. Trends Russia-NATO relations Releasing the footage of Russian jet flybys in the vicinity of the destroyer, the US Navy said that its vessel has encountered multiple “aggressive flight maneuvers ...within close proximity of the ship,” some as close as 30 feet (10 meters) on Monday and Tuesday. The set of incidents took place as the US ship, which had sailed from the Polish port of Gdynia, was conducting exercises with its NATO ally Poland in the Baltic Sea. The Navy announced that the SU-24 first flew over Donald Cook on Monday as US sailors were rehearsing “deck landing drills with an allied [Polish] military helicopter”. The numerous close-range, low altitude encounters were witnessed at 3:00pm local time, forcing the commander of the ship to suspend helicopter refueling on the deck until the Russian jets departed the area. The next day, the Navy said, Russia caused concern among US sailors when a Russian KA-27 Helix helicopter flew seven times over the ship at low altitude in international waters at around 5:00pm. Some 40 minutes later, two Russian SU-24 jets allegedly made a further 11 “close-range and low altitude passes”. “The Russian aircraft flew in a simulated attack profile and failed to respond to repeated safety advisories in both English and Russian. USS Donald Cook’s commanding officer deemed several of these maneuvers as unsafe and unprofessional,” the Navy said. Judging by the videos released by the US Navy, the sailors were nonplussed by the Russian aerobatic skills. They gathered on the top deck of the destroyer to watch the Russian pilots. “He is on the deck below the bridge lane...It looks like he’ll be coming in across the flight deck, coming in low, bridge wing level...Over the bow, right turn, over the bow...” the voiceover on the footage states in what looks more like an instructor’s advice on how to maneuver in open waters, rather than the panic that the central command presented it to be. At least on the video no one can be seen running for cover. According to a US defense official who spoke with Defense News, sailors aboard the Donald Cook claimed that the Russian jets’ low altitude stirred waters and created wake underneath the ship. US personnel on the American vessels, also claimed that Su-24 was “wings clean,” meaning no armaments were present on the Russian jets that could have posed a threat to US operations in the Baltic. Yet at the same time, the official noted, that this week's incidents are “more aggressive than anything we’ve seen in some time,” as the SU-24 appeared to be flying in a “simulated attack profile.” The Russian overflights have caused panic over in Washington, with White House spokesman Josh Earnest calling the actions of the Russian pilots “provocative” and “inconsistent with professional norms of militaries.” “I hear the Russians are up to their old tricks again in the EUCOM [US European Command] AOR [area of responsibility],” Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. Steve Warren said during a briefing on Wednesday, adding that the US is “concerned with this behavior.” “We have deep concerns about the unsafe and unprofessional Russian flight maneuvers. These actions have the potential to unnecessarily escalate tensions between countries, and could result in a miscalculation or accident that could cause serious injury or death,” the US European Command said in a statement. In the meantime Adm. John Richardson, the chief of naval operations, thanked the US crew for keeping their cool during the stressful situation. “Bravo Zulu to the crew of USS Donald Cook for their initiative and toughness in how they handled themselves during this incident,” the admiral said on Facebook. Russia has yet to comment on the incidents but most likely the Russian air craft flew from the Kaliningrad region, bordering Poland. Kaliningrad is the headquarters of the Russian Baltic Fleet, which also includes the Chernyakhovsk, Donskoye, and Kaliningrad Chkalovsk air bases.

A US aircraft carrier sailed into the Persian Gulf on Friday, becoming the first since America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuke deal and breaking the longest carrier absence in the volatile region since at least the September 11 terror attacks. The arrival of the USS John C. Stennis comes as Iranian officials have returned to repeatedly threatening to close off the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow mouth of the Persian Gulf through which a third of all oil traded by sea passes. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels shadowed the Stennis and its strike group, at one point launching rockets away from it and flying a drone nearby. Reference: https://bit.ly/2EDGmG0
