Summary

The simulated attacks on the US warship “Donald Cook” on the Baltic Sea should be regarded as ordinary military practice, they are also in line with the law. US indignation on this matter is a manifestation of anti-Russian rhetorics.

Disproof

According to White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, the fighter jet's behaviour was “entirely inconsistent with the professional norms of militaries operating in proximity to each other in international waters and international airspace” (bit.ly/1V1QjiX), . It also violated the 1972 US-USSR bilateral agreement on the "Prevention of Incidents On and Over the High Seas" (1.usa.gov/24fejRu), .
