Coast Guard confirms Russian, Chinese warship near Alaska

The U.S. Coast Guard has shared that it spotted Russian and Chinese warships just 75 miles north of Kiska Island, Alaska.

The information was shared in a recent news release from the military branch.

"The Coast Guard Cutter Kimball crew on a routine patrol in the Bering Sea encountered a People’s Republic of China Guided Missile Cruiser, Renhai CG 101, sailing approximately 75 nautical miles north of Kiska Island, Alaska, September 19, 2022," the news release shared.

"The Kimball crew later identified two more Chinese naval vessels and four Russian naval vessels, including a Russian Federation Navy destroyer, all in a single formation with the Renhai as a combined surface action group operating in the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ)," it added.

The new information comes as Russia has faced sanctions from the U.S. and Western nations following its invasion of Ukraine.

The sighting also shows that Russia and China continue to work together in ways that should concern Americans, posing a near threat to American land near the Russian coast.
