The American destroyer Labun leaves the Black Sea

The American missile destroyer Labun begins the transition from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean after the patrol is completed, the 6th Fleet of the US Navy reports on Twitter.

“The US Navy ship Labun has begun a southward transition from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean after completing a maritime patrol in support of NATO allies and partners in the Black Sea,” the report says.

Earlier it was reported that the American destroyer entered the Black Sea on June 11. The National Defense Control Center noted that the ship is being monitored by the forces of the Black Sea Fleet.

The US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class destroyer Labun, commissioned in 1995, is armed with two Aegis launchers that can carry up to 56 Tomahawk cruise missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. The SH-60 Seahawk helicopter is also located onboard the ship. The crew of the destroyer is 337 people.

Since the beginning of the year, US warships, including the Ticonderoga-class missile cruiser, have entered the Black Sea several times.
