USS Carney (DDG 64) arrived in Odessa, Ukraine, Jan. 8, 2018, for a scheduled port visit.
The visit to Odessa demonstrates a shared commitment to promote security and stability within the region, while seeking opportunities to enhance interoperability with partners in the Black Sea.
“As a Forward-Deployed Naval Forces – Europe destroyer, returning to the Black Sea and Odessa is a familiar mission. Carney was here during the summer in support of Sea Breeze 2017, and we look forward to improving our cooperative capability with the Ukrainian Navy,” said Cmdr. Peter Halvorsen, commanding officer of Carney.
