Earlier, the US Navy’s Sixth Fleet reported that Hamilton entered the Black Sea “to support NATO allies and partners.”
The Black Sea Fleet monitors the actions of the US Coast Guard patrol ship Hamilton, which entered the Black Sea. This was reported to journalists on Tuesday at the National Defense Management Center of the Russian Federation.
“The forces and means of the Black Sea Fleet have begun tracking the actions of the US Coast Guard patrol ship Hamilton, which entered the Black Sea on April 27,” the ministry said.
Earlier, the US Navy’s Sixth Fleet said that Hamilton entered the Black Sea “to support allies and NATO partners.”
The boat of this type of armed forces last entered the Black Sea water area in 2008.
The Coast Guard is one of the branches of the armed forces in the United States, along with the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps. The Russian Foreign Ministry has repeatedly noted that the military presence of ships of powers located outside the region in the Black Sea does not contribute to strengthening stability.
