AIS Spoof – Ross

The American missile destroyer Ross is approaching Crimea at a speed of 23 knots, according to Marine Traffic.

The American destroyer Ross, which is approaching the Crimea at this moment, is escorting an unidentified ship.  Probably Russian border guards or military.

The US missile destroyer Ross appears to have entered Russian territorial waters, then abruptly changed course to the right, judging by the tracker Marine Traffic.  An unidentified ship is following him.  Probably border guards.

The American destroyer Ross, which approached the Crimean coast, lost speed (from 24 to 6 knots) and abruptly left to the right away from the peninsula.

The webcam of the Odessa port shows that “Ross” is there (upper right corner).  A highly technical capability spoofed the AIS in the Marine Traffic tracker.
