The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) arrived in Odessa, Ukraine, Jan. 8, 2018, for a scheduled port visit.
This is the destroyer’s second Odessa visit within a year.
In July last year, Carney pulled into Odessa before taking part in the international exercise Sea Breeze 2017.
The destroyer is set to stay in Odessa until January 11 and will continue its Black Sea tour with port visits to Bulgaria, Romania and Georgia.
Carney, forward-deployed to Rota, Spain, is conducting a routine patrol to support U.S. national security interests in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations.
