US presence in Black Sea for training helps send ‘message to any adversary,’ USAFE leader says

“Conducting operations in the Black Sea ensures stability throughout the region,” Gen. Jeff Harrigian, USAFE commander, said in a statement. “Our combined presence strengthens relationships with our allies and partners while sending a message to any adversary that we are committed to collective defense and ready to respond in a complex security environment.”

In addition, more than 2,000 troops from eight countries are taking part in training exercise Sea Breeze, scheduled through July 26. The exercise is in its 20th iteration and includes personnel from Ukraine, Norway, Spain, Romania, Turkey, Bulgaria, Georgia, and the U.S.
