The United States Department of Defense does not confirm information that the US is considering sending its warships to the Black Sea shortly in a show of support for Ukraine.

"No confirmation. We have nothing to share with you on this at this time," TASS was told at the press service of the United States European Command after it had asked to confirm and comment on a CNN report.

"The US Navy routinely operates in the Black Sea, but a deployment of warships now would send a specific message to Moscow that the US is closely watching," CNN quoted a US defense official as telling it on Thursday.
