 The Russian defence ministry, quoted by Interfax, said the crew of a Russian ship, the Admiral Tributs, had radioed a warning to the USS Chafee that it was “in an area closed to navigation due to exercises with artillery fire”.

 Earlier, the ministry said Russia and China had held joint naval drills in the Sea of Japan.
