    According to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's European Cooperation Department the entry of US vessels into the Black Sea will trigger response measures from Russia.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The entry of US vessels into the Black Sea will trigger response measures from Russia, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry's European Cooperation Department said Friday.

    "From time to time, US vessels enter the Black Sea. Obviously, we do not appreciate it and, undoubtedly, this will lead to retaliatory measures," Andrei Kelin told RIA Novosti.

    Earlier this week, the US Nimitz-class aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman entered the Mediterranean Sea. The move was described by Kelin as a "show of power" ahead of the NATO summit in Warsaw, Poland.
