“The return of USS Ross to the Arctic is the third call by US Navy destroyers into the Barents Sea this year to conduct operations there,” the statement said.

“The United States is an Arctic country and has strong security interests in the region. We are working with our allies and partners to secure an open Arctic while continuing to conduct ground, air and sea operations necessary for containment, presence and security, ”the Navy said.
