Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

Here is a quick video of what can go wrong. They don't appear to have employed a tug before the ramming.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

According to professional Russian sources, there were two tugs and a local pilot involved in this maneuver. Small harbour (picture below), not much wider than Kruzenshtern's LOA. The barque was tied to the SW wall, bow pointed SE. They had to turn her around almost 180 degrees. A strong westerly squall, towing line failure, the result you can see on the video.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

I think at that speed you'd have to classify this as passive aggressive.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

Hot from Pravda: Icelandic Navy aggressor in attempt to prevent Russian peace emissary from returning to motherland. Comrad Putin protests in the strongest terms this provocative action by Icelandic Navy and plans to propose strong sanctions against the aggressor state at the United Nations General Assembly.

Icelandic News Service: Huh?
