This year, the United States will represent the destroyer Carney at the Sea Breeze exercises, which, according to the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, has already begun the Dardanelles crossing, and the USNS Yuma transport and landing ship.
The start of the exercises is scheduled for July 1. During the exercises, artillery firing, landing of inspection groups, as well as improving the interaction of special units are planned. About 900 military personnel will take part in Sea Breeze this year.
This year's innovation will be the development of military operations on the river, in which only the coast guard of the Ukrainian border service will be involved. For this, part of the exercises will be held in the Ukrainian part of the Danube estuary.

The destroyer carries on board from 20 to 30 Tomahawk cruise missiles with a flight range of 1,6 kilometers.
