U.S. Navy destroyer Ross again heading to Black Sea

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Ross (DDG-71) is heading to the Black Sea to conduct maritime security operations and enhance regional maritime stability, according to a report posted on the website of the U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. 6th Fleet.

"With this visit, we are consistently strengthening our relationships with our Black Sea partners. Steady operations in the Black Sea are crucial to building a secure maritime environment and ensuring freedom of navigation," said Cmdr. John John, commanding officer of Ross.

Ross recently operated with the French aircraft carrier FS Charles de Gaulle (R 91) and as part of Combined Task Force 473 in the Mediterranean during FOCH, a major French navy deployment.

This is the first time a U.S. Navy ship has visited the Black Sea since the beginning of 2020.
