The incident prompted Russian charges that the American vessel, apparently on a spying mission, illegally encroached on Russian territorial waters.

A Russian coast guard vessel fired warning shots Monday at a Greenpeace ship as it tried to investigate the environmental threat posed by a vast nuclear dump site inside the Arctic Circle, officials said. After firing flares and repeatedly ordering the Solo--a 219-foot ship owned by the maverick environmental group--to leave Russia's economic zone, the Ural patrol vessel "was forced to fire several warning shots with a 30-millimeter cannon," said Vladimir Biketov, a Russian official spokesman.
