"The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Ross participated in maritime interoperability training and replenishment-at-sea with Turkish maritime counterparts April 27 in the Black Sea," the release said.
The release noted that the US Navy regularly participates in military exercises with allies and partners in the Black Sea.
Earlier in April, NATO countries conducted military drills in the Black Sea. The Russian Navy carried out its own drills with the country's Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko warning that increased NATO activity in the area heightens the risks to regional security.
Grushko added that Russia is ready for any changes in the military security in the Black Sea region and will take additional defense measures if necessary.
