"The forces of the Black Sea fleet have begun to monitor the destructive USS missile aircraft carrier Donald Cook as soon as it entered the Black Sea," says the Russian news agency Interfax. The American shipwreck is currently being pursued by the Pytlivy, a patrol ship of the Black Sea Fleet.
Russia has said that if the USS Donald Cook is "in the area of responsibility" of the Russian Black Sea fleet, "it will be monitored by electronic means and other technical means".
The USS Donald Cook destroyer was announced to head for the Black Sea. This is a destroyer Arleigh Burke who often participates in the Sea Breeze military exercises, reports the Ukrainian news agency Dumskaya.
