US missile-armed warship heads into Black Sea

An American Navy guided-missile destroyer, the USS Arleigh Burke, has been deployed to the Black Sea. The mission comes amid heightened NATO activities in the region, with two other US warships recorded in the area last week.
The deployment of the guided-missile destroyer was announced by the US Navy on Thursday. The mission is its first movement since it switched its homeport to a naval base in Rota, Spain.
“USS Arleigh Burke began its northbound transit to the Black Sea to operate with our NATO allies & partners in the region,” the Navy said in a statement.
