American destroyer USS Thomas Hudner (DDG-116) left the Black Sea

The destroyer USS Thomas Hudner (DDG-116) left the Black Sea on Tuesday morning, March 23, entering the Bosphorus. This is reported by the command of the 6th operational fleet US Navy.


During a four-day visit to the Black Sea, the destroyer took part in the Sea Shield 2021 naval exercises conducted by the Romanian Navy together with ships from the fleets of Bulgaria and Turkey. In addition, according to tradition, another task of the American warship was "to conduct operations to ensure safety at sea."

After the departure of the destroyer USS Thomas Hudner, another American warship continues to be in the Black Sea - the missile cruiser USS Monterey (CG-61), which entered the water area last Friday. His task in the command of the 6th Fleet called the provision of "the protection of freedom, economic prosperity and free and open navigation." However, the US Navy covers all its operations with slogans about ensuring "freedom and democracy", changing only the name of the region where they are visiting.

Meanwhile, the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation reported that the American cruiser is under continuous control of the forces and assets of the Black Sea Fleet.

The destroyer USS Thomas Hudner (DDG-116) and the cruiser USS Monterey (CG-61) are part of the escort group for the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS CVN-69 Eisenhower ("Dwight Eisenhower"). The aircraft carrier itself, along with the rest of the AUG ships, is currently in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Turkey.

      The mattresses have another massacre. Supermarket, Boulder, Colorado. How many is not yet clear (ed.)
      Live. The shooter is detained. In the district, there is an order for residents to stay at home and not go out into the street. which is strange if they detained

      10 corpses
      1 employee
      Eric Tully
      11 years of experience
      The shooter was with a machine gun
      Eric was the first to arrive at the scene of the shooting, the first to leave for the XNUMXth
      And they all climb to us, they would have figured it out!

      A tablecloth path ... He is not needed in the Black Sea! There is no need to fumble at foreign borders - there is a whole ocean for the freedom of navigation, and here it is like smeared with honey!

      Can you imagine what a relief it is for his crew ... laughing
      When we left the zone of destruction of the Russian complexes.

        The crew will probably not find out about this, but the main thing is that you feel warm from it.

    "protecting freedom, economic prosperity and free and open navigation"

    Did someone interfere with open navigation?
    But about freedom and economic prosperity in Eastern Europe has long been forgotten.

    the task of the American warship was to "conduct safety operations at sea"

    It sounds somewhat comical. It is necessary to fill an island in the middle of the Black Sea and build an American base there, then nothing at all will interfere with shipping except the Americans

    The second will be removed, the next will come to replace. Today they go to the Black Sea as to themselves in the Gulf of Mexico. All oppose and ensure "safety at sea".
