Warships withdrawn from naval parade in St. Petersburg after destroyer of US Navy entered Baltic Sea

Warships of the Baltic Fleet that arrived in St. Petersburg to participate in the parade on Victory Day suddenly left on May 6th in the unknown direction. According to local media, the reason might be the fact that an American destroyer USS Carney with cruise missiles approached the shores of Kaliningrad.

A small anti-submarine ship Urengoy and a submarine Kolpino left the water area of ​​the Neva River. Corvette Stoykiy and missile boat Morshansk also set off towards the Baltic Sea.

Afterwards, Stoykiy and Urengoi appeared off the island of Kotlin near Kronstadt city. Stoykiy launched its air defense complex.

Two minesweepers and a small anti-submarine ship Zelenodolsk stayed in St. Petersburg.

USS Carney is the 14th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. Among other weapons, it is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range over a thousand kilometers.
