In a typical rah-rah fashion, the fleet's spokesperson, Lieutenant Rachel McMarr, claimed that the ship sailed there to "challenge Russia's excessive maritime claims".

"These operations demonstrate the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever worldwide law allows", McMarr said, according to CNN. In 2014, Russian Federation annexed Crimea from Ukraine and has since been providing support to separatist forces against the Ukrainian government.
The operation on Wednesday follows Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement on Tuesday that the US would pull out of the INF treaty unless Russian Federation addresses what he called Moscow's "flagrant disregard" of its terms.
