The US missile destroyer Zumwalt and high tech destroyer of the British Royal Navy HMS Duncan have turned into useless tin cans due to China. Microchips made in China have put the vessels out of action. They had been installed on board. Before that the newest US destroyer had unexpectedly gone out of order while passing through the Panama Canal. And that had not been for the first time. First of all, there had been detected a leakage in propulsion. Then, being in Florida, the ship faced technical problems yet again. The Duncan destroyer, which costs 1.2bln dollars, got into the same situation during NATO's manoeuvres. As it turned out, the Chinese 'killer chips' are to be blamed. Dozens of thousands of them were purchased by the US Navy. Obama's Administration had been informed of the danger device posed. However, the Pentagon kept buying microchips and used them even when it was found out that they provoked failure in the US military networks. The killer chips are present in almost all of the military equipment and communications systems which have been recently built by the US and Great Britain.
The military experts cannot decide how ships put out of order by the Chinese chips should be treated during conflicts and military operations: either they are qualified as being in distress and are not shelled, or they are regarded as posing threat and thus should be drowned.
The United States and NATO are conducting provocative activities both in airspace and waters of the Black Sea, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu said
