The sensational provocation of Kerch, committed last November by the ships of the Navy of Ukraine, clearly was not in vain, taking its place in the notorious methods of the West.
Now this experience is actively used by the United States for personal purposes. It was tested off the coast of the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, where the US destroyer USS McCampbell passed demonstratively.
This Monday, January 7, reports Reuters news agency, referring to the statement of the representative of the US Pacific Fleet. UU Rachel McMarr.
In his statement, he reported that the warship passed 12 nautical miles from the archipelago. However, he did not hide the purpose of this mission, which is “to question excessive maritime claims”. McMarr did not specify who the claims are, however, it is quite obvious that this indicative act was directed against China.
Beijing connects the archipelago with the island-province of Hainan. China established control over the islands in 1974, but claims to have the archipelago of Vietnam, which includes the islands in Hoangsha county, as well as Taiwan.
It is worth noting that the South China Sea has remained for a long time as a zone of confrontation between the states of the region and that the United States has repeatedly tried to intervene in the situation, provoking Beijing.
