United States strengthens presence in Black Sea

The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf entered the Black Sea on August 6 to promote peace and stability in the region, reads a report posted on the website of the U.S. Navy.
“The U.S. Navy’s forward presence in Europe allows us to work with our allies and partners to develop and improve ready maritime forces capable of maintaining regional security,” reads the report.
Vella Gulf, homeported in Norfolk, Va., is deployed in a multi-mission role in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations to contribute to regional maritime security, conduct bilateral and multilateral training missions, and to support NATO operations and deployments throughout the region.
