The ship will take part in operations with NATO partners in the region.

The U.S. Navy missile destroyer Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) is heading to the Black Sea to participate in operations with NATO partners in the region. This was announced on Thursday on its Twitter page by the command of the Sixth Fleet of the U.S. Navy.

“Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) has begun a northward passage to the Black Sea to begin working with NATO allies and partners in the region,” the publication says.

The U.S. Navy ships in the Black Sea are monitored by the forces and means of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the operations of American warships in the water area are becoming a destabilizing factor in the region; one of their goals is the military development of the territory of Ukraine. The Russian armed forces are continuously monitoring and monitoring the situation, the Defense Ministry stressed.
