Coincedental Port Call of Russian and United States Naval Warship in the Philippines

Published on December 31, 2016 by

In February 2012, three Russian Navy ships arrived at Pier 15, Manila, Philippines, for a three-day visit intended at intensifying relations between the two countries.

The Russian contingent includes anti-submarine warship Admiral Panteleev, the large sea tanker Boris Butoma, and the rescue tug Fotiv Krylov.

At that time, they were welcomed by the Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas (BRP) Emilio Jacinto (PS35), a Jacinto-Class Patrol Vessel (JCPV), via a meeting procedure.

While at the port, meters away from from the Russian Navy destroyer position, a US Navy Guided Missile Destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer was also docking at the other side of the bay.

Seems coincidental, but I think it’s really obvious the US don’t want the Russian to be happy during their visit here in the Philippines.

After the Russian Destroyer leaves the country at that time, the US Navy destroyer also leave and went to Cebu for a port call.
