The Shenandoah ended up attacking Yankee whalers in waters very close to both Russia's Siberian territory and Russian Alaska. Did Russia (or local Russian officials) have any sort of public reaction to this? What about Russian ships in those waters? Were there any measures taken by them to try and avoid getting mixed up in the conflict? Did the Russian navy maybe conduct patrols out there to avoid any misunderstandings?
