MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. US warships did not enter the Black Sea, a spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“On February 3, destroyer USS Ramage and command ship USS Mount Whitney did not enter the Black Sea,” the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry told Itar-Tass that two US warships would enter the Black Sea on Tuesday or Wednesday this week. “Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow guided missile destroyer USS Arleigh Burke and command ship Mount Whitney will enter the Black Sea. Their entry in Ukrainian territorial waters is not planned,” the ministry said. “At least the United States has not made any bids for US warships to enter Ukrainian territorial waters,” the Ukrainian ministry said.
“Probably, American warships will stay in the Black Sea until February 24-25,” the ministry said.
Several Russian media outlets have reported earlier on Monday with the reference to a military diplomatic source that missile destroyer Ramage and command ship Mount Whitney with 600 marines onboard had entered the Black Sea.
