 US destroyers sailing into Baltic Russia: no threat to Russia

The US Navys Gravely missile destroyer sailed into the Baltic Sea on the 10th. Former senior Russian officials said it was to demonstrate the strength of the U.S. military, but did not pose any threat to Russia.

According to the Russian news agency on January 10, at 5:04 a.m., the U.S. Navy released a picture of the missile destroyer Gravley entering the Baltic Sea through the Erle Strait on its official Twitter account.

Reported that the Greavery missile destroyer is the first NATO naval vessel in active service, can carry up to 56 Tomahawk cruise missiles. The missile destroyer approached the Russian Navy frigate Yaroslav in the Mediterranean Sea on June 17, 2016. At that time, the Russian Ministry of Defense pointed out that the United States seriously violated international regulations and the relevant agreements signed by Russia and the United States.

On December 5, 2018, Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, the former commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, said that under the Montreux Convention, the United States could not use aircraft carriers in the Black Sea, while in the Baltic Sea it was difficult because there was not enough space for ships to navigate and deploy.
