It is noted that Carney was the first NATO ship to call at the port of Odessa in the new year. He is expected to take part in conducting maritime security operations and strengthening combined preparedness and naval capabilities among Allies and partners of the North Atlantic Alliance. The destroyer will stay in Odessa until January 11.
Ships of this type are armed with launchers of the Aegis system, which can carry up to 56 Tomahawk cruise missiles equipped with nuclear warheads.
In July, 2017, Carney took part in the international exercise "Sea Breeze-2017", during which the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko rose to his board, for lack of his ships.
