Military Affairs: US Navy to begin Black Sea exercise with Ukraine
Thursday 27 August 2015

The U.S. will kick off its annual exercise with the Ukrainian navy next week in the Black Sea. Eleven nations are expected to participate in the Sea Breeze exercise, which focuses on maritime skills and tactics such as interdiction, anti-submarine warfare, and search and rescue. The U.S. and Ukraine co-host the exercise, now in its 14th year. Roughly 400 American sailors will participate, including those stationed aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook. A P-3C Orion maritime patrol aircraft from Patrol Squadron 9 out of the Navy base at Souda Bay, Crete, will also take part. Ukraine’s naval forces and capabilities were devastated by Russia’s invasion and annexation of Crimea last year. Headquartered in the Crimean city of Sevastopol at the time of the invasion, the Ukrainian navy lost several ships to seizure or scuttling by Russian forces. The land portion of this year’s exercise will be hosted out of Odessa, the Ukrainian navy’s new headquarters. Also participating are ships and sailors from Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy, Moldova, Romania, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine the United Kingdom. (Stars and Stripes)

Note by ACDN
France is not quoted among the participants, although she was very active in the Black Sea in April 2014. Maybe because of the current French-Russian discussions on "the size of France’s payment for the severed deal to supply Mistral helicopter carriers to Russia" (Tass)?

L'argent est le nerf de la paix ! ACDN vous remercie de lui
