Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed serious concerns over an American warship that is now moving toward its shoreline in the Black Sea, whereas the US sees it as a vital aspect of its plans to build a missile defense system in Europe, which Moscow opposes. USS Monterey guided-missile cruiser is now participating in joint annual military exercises, the Sea Breeze-2011, carried out by Ukraine and NATO off Russia’s shores. Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday issued a statement making it clear that Russia won’t leave any elements of American strategic infrastructure close to its borders unnoticed and will see such measures as a threat to its security.
