USS Roosevelt visits Black Sea
The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG 80) began its northbound international strait transit en route to the Black Sea, Sept. 15, 2020, to conduct maritime security operations with NATO allies and partners in the region.
This is the sixth time a U.S. Navy ship has visited the Black Sea since the beginning of 2020. The last ship to visit the region was USS Porter (DDG 78) in July during exercise Sea Breeze 2020. Roosevelt will focus on enhancing regional maritime stability, combined readiness, and naval capability.
