Two US Navy ships entered the Black Sea at different times. Namely, the Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG 80) and the Spearhead class fast transport ship USNS Yuma.

Through its Twitter account, the US Navy’s 6th Fleet announced, USS Roosevelt began transit to the North en route to the Black Sea on Tuesday (15/9).

Shortly afterwards, USNS Yuma began its transit to the North towards the Black Sea on Wednesday (16/9).

Sixth time visiting the Black Sea

Citing a press release on the 6th Fleet’s official website, this is the sixth time US Navy ships have visited the Black Sea since early 2020.
