“The US frigate (USS Taylor) is now heading to Constanta (Romania’s largest sea port),” the source said. He noted that French intelligence ship Dupuy de Lome was scheduled to leave the Black Sea and go back to the Mediterranean Sea on April 30.
Dupuy de Lome and USS Donald Cook with Aegis missile defense system onboard entered the Black Sea on April 10. Donald Cook is currently stationed in the western part of the sea. Dupuy de Lome is positioned in the central part of the Black Sea.
