    The US guided missile destroyer Carney docked in Kiel, Germany on the Baltic Sea for a scheduled visit, the US Navy said in a press release on Wednesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Navy explained the ship's presence in the Baltic Sea is a "demonstration of the continued commitment to the collective security of NATO under Operation Atlantic Resolve."

    "The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) arrived in Kiel, Germany, for a scheduled port visit," the release stated.

    The Carney carries the Aegis ballistic missile and air defense system, according to published Navy documents.

    The sailing distance from Kiel to Russia's Kaliningrad Oblast is roughly 412 nautical miles.
