Russians 'Trying to Send Signal' in Baltic Flyovers – US Navy Chief

Dans le sillage des nouvelles accusations d'agressions russes dans la mer Baltique, un officier supérieur de la marine américaine a appelé à une «normalisation» des relations entre Washington et Moscou.
In the wake of new accusations of Russian “aggression” in the Baltic Sea, the US Navy’s top officer has called for a "normalization" of relations between Washington and Moscow.

After a pair of Russian Su-24’s were accused of flying "unprofessional" maneuvers near the USS Donald Cook as it sailed through the Baltic Sea in early April, the Pentagon accused the Kremlin of similar incidents. Last Friday, the US accused a Russian Su-27 of intercepting a US RC-135 surveillance plane flying in the region.
lundi, l'amiral John Richardson, haut officier de la marine américaine, a lancé un appel pour la «normalisation» dans les relations entre les deux pays.
The Pentagon described the encounter as "unsafe and unprofessional," and on Monday Admiral John Richardson, the top US Navy officer, issued a call for "normalization" in relations between the two countries.

"It just increases the chance for some kind of a tactical miscalculation," Richardson told reporters. "It just sort of raises the overall tension in the region, so we look for sort of normalization there."
Richardson, ainsi que d'autres responsables du Pentagone, ne semblent pas disposés à envisager la possibilité que des navires de guerre américains et des avions d'espionnage opérant à plus de 4000 miles de la maison et à proximité des frontières russes pourraient être la source réelle des tensions

Richardson, along with other Pentagon officials, seems unwilling to consider the possibility that US warships and spy planes operating over 4,000 miles from home near Russian borders could be the real source of the tensions.

On Saturday, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov stressed that the interception was carried out in accordance with international law.

"At the same time we want to note that the RC-135U reconnaissance plane tries to sneak up to the Russian border with the transponder turned off all the time," he told reporters. 
"Therefore, air defense forces on duty have to lift our fighter to visually identify the type of aircraft and its tail number."
On Monday, Richardson called on Moscow to abide by maritime treaties which seek to prevent international mishaps.
"We continue to advocate for that," he said.
«Je ne pense pas que les Russes essaient de provoquer un incident», a ajouté Richardson. "Je pense qu'ils essaient d'envoyer un signal."
"I don’t think the Russians are trying to provoke an incident," Richardson added. "I think they are trying to send a signal."
This is, at the very least, a more measured response than that given by Republican presidential frontrunner and five-time military draft dodger Donald Trump earlier on Monday.
"Et si cela [la diplomatie] ne fonctionne pas, je ne sais pas ... à un certain moment, quand ce connard vient par ici, tu dois tirer"
"And if that [diplomacy] doesn’t work out, I don’t know…at a certain point, when that sucker comes by, you gotta shoot," he said, in a marked departure from his promise last week to replace "chaos with peace" if elected.
