The Legend-class national security cutter USCGC Hamilton (WMSL 753) transited into the Black Sea in support of NATO Allies and partners on April 27, according to the press service of U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa/U.S. Sixth Fleet.

Hamilton is the first U.S. Coast Guard Cutter to visit the Black Sea since 2008. The last U.S. Coast Guard Cutter to visit the Black Sea, USCGC Dallas (WHEC 716) sailed to the Black Sea twice, in 2008 and 1995.

As Ukrinform reported, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the United States would continue to watch closely the withdrawal of Russian military forces from the borders of Ukraine, because it was too early to say that Russian troops had been withdrawn.
