It said that after the warning was issued and the Admiral Vinogradov changed its course, the USS John S. McCain destroyer "returned to international waters."

In a statement, the U.S. Pacific Fleet said that USS John S. McCain had simply "asserted navigational rights and freedoms," which it added were recognized in international law "by challenging Russia's excessive maritime claims."

It referred to how in 1984, before the fall of the Soviet Union, Moscow had claimed straight baselines along its coasts as internal waters, including one that enclosed Peter the Great Bay. It said that this meant Moscow had claimed more territorial waters than it was entitled to.

"This 106-nautical-mile closing line is inconsistent with the rules of international law as reflected in the Law of the Sea Convention to enclose the waters of a bay," the statement said.

"By conducting this operation, the United States demonstrated that these waters are not Russia's territorial sea and that the United States does not acquiesce in Russia's claim that Peter the Great is a 'historic bay' under international law."

Such spats, although relatively routine, are increasing in number between Russia and NATO allies.

"For Russia, they vindicate the 'besieged fortress' narrative that 'NATO forces are out there to get us.'
