    I don’t understand what is the point of them entering the Black Sea. This is a puddle of no strategic importance. The US Navy can carry out all its combat missions from the Marmara and Aegean Seas. Yes, and the Black Sea Fleet in the event of war will not be able to pass through the Beauforts .... Therefore, I consider a farce both the entry of a ship into the Black Sea and the capture of it for tracking by the forces of the Black Sea Fleet ...

      There are two reasons:
      1. Demonstration of the flag of the US Navy.
      (First of all for US allies)
      2. The US military needs to spend more dough. (In the form of fuel, motorcycle resource, etc.)

        It would be gorgeous to hear that the Russian destroyer pr.23560 came on a friendly visit to the Bahamas, then to Cuba ...

        And who better off showing the flag? It’s absolutely clear that in case of war any NATO ship in the Black Sea will be destroyed (as well as any ship of the Black Sea Fleet trying to go beyond the Black Sea)

        Insurgent, I’ll ask you one question, but think carefully before answering. What evidence do you have that the States wanted to establish their base in Crimea? And if they so wanted their base on the Black Sea, what prevents them from creating it now in Odessa? (by the way, Ukrainians tearfully asked for this)

          Ukromaydaunov plans to squeeze the Russian Federation out of Crimea, agreed with the United States, after "overturning the revolution of hydraulicity" ...

          "Crimean spring", everything broke ...

          What is my evidence?

            Ukrainians asked the States to establish a base in Odessa and were sent. How does this indicate the intentions of the Americans to establish bases in Crimea in the 14th year?

              This confirms that the Americans are not fools, and do not intend to climb to a place where, thanks to the jumping maydauns, it can get really hot ...
              It would be quiet, it would be quite possible to consider the base in Odessa as a seedy alternative, and so ... Please do not disturb yes laughing .

                You rightly pointed out that Americans are not fools. That is why they have no reason to create a base in the Black Sea that has no strategic importance. You see, even in Poland they do not want to create a base, although the Poles are ready to pay for everything. We alone have poured billions into this Syria that nobody needs, it is not clear why ...

      Right now the Americans have the meaning of such visits and this is primarily a political meaning. Yes, the sailors of the Black Sea Fleet will take the destroyer for escort, give marks on its sides. But, diplomatic shouts will follow shouts addressed to our imperious "patriots." And they will watch the reaction.

      We have already been accustomed to the fact that the Americans in the Black Sea are at home and this is not right! We need to learn how to be with our regular presence in the Gulf of Mexico, with regular friendly visits to Havana. That is the question by what means?

      Who told you about the change in the status of the Black Sea after the collapse of the USSR?

      Actually, the "movement" in the World Cup is regulated by "Straits Convention "(Montreux, 1936), and changes in it were caused only by the expansion of the list of states that received the status of" Black Sea ", caused by the collapse of the Union ...

    There is such a thing as reconnaissance in battle, of course, in this case no one will shoot, but the point of such visits is to determine the reaction time to their actions, reaction forces, and also the removal of various electronic indicators. In general, provoke the enemy and evaluate his strength and means.
