According to the command of the sixth fleet of the United States, the missile destroyer Ross went into the Black Sea to maintain security in the region.
“The mission of the USS Ross class missile destroyer is to strengthen regional stability,” the report said on the United States Navy website.
The warship operates as part of the operation «Atlantic Resolve», launched under the auspices of NATO in 2014 after the Crimean peninsula became Russian again. After the start of this operation, the ships of the US Navy began to regularly enter the Black Sea. According to the Montreux Convention, American ships can be here for no more than three weeks.
