Meanwhile, the US Navy has reportedly started planning to send a warship to the Black Sea in the near future.

Pacific Fleet stressed to CNN that Wednesday's freedom-of-navigation operation (FONOP) was "not about any one country, nor are they about current events", adding, "These operations demonstrate the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever worldwide law allows".

Moreover, during its journey, the USA warship was closely tracked by a Russian destroyer "Admiral Tributs" along with the aircraft of Russia's Pacific Fleet, the MoD spokesperson noted.

The U.S. Navy noted that it is positioning itself to be able to respond to threats against its interests in the Black Sea.

A US Navy official said the US does not recognise Russia's claims on the waters.
