MOSCOW: The Russian Foreign ministry said on Friday Moscow would respond to the entry of a U.S. naval ship into the Black Sea with unspecified measures, the RIA news agency reported.


Russian state media reported that the USS Porter, a U.S. naval destroyer, entered the Black Sea a few days ago on a routine deployment, a move it said raised hackles in Moscow because it had recently been fitted with a new missile system.
