#USA / #Russia

US Transportation Command told Business Insider in a statement it was aware of the “alleged situation” between the US-flagged ship under a Pentagon contract and the Russian military, but did not confirm details.

“US aircraft and ships routinely interact with other nations, including Russia, in international seas and waters, and most interactions are safe and professional,” US Transportation Command said. “While under DoD contract, commercial shippers are expected to observe these same maritime laws. We expect Russian vessels and aircraft to operate safely and professionally as well.”

Nobody was hurt during the incident, the command said. The ship also arrived safely and undamaged.

The shipping company, Central Gulf Lines, and its parent company, International Shipholding Company, were not able to provide additional details on how exactly the Russian vessel and helicopters harassed the US ship.
