` US readies for referendum and moves their `Navy Destroyer ‘ USS Truxtun into place in Black Sea ‘

#AceWorldNews says that the US Navy destroyer, the USS Truxtun, has crossed Turkey’s Bosphorus and entered the Black Sea.

With the Crimea Peninsula getting ready to hold a referendum on independence from Ukraine in a week, the US is ramping up its military presence in the region.

USS Truxton is heading to “previously planned” training exercises with the Bulgarian and Romanian navies, AFP reported earlier.

At the same time, Fox News declared that NATO’s bolstering presence in the Black Sea is a “defensive” measure to counter “Russian military aggression” in Ukraine.
