USS MOUNT WHITNEY ARRIVES IN GEORGIAN PORT OF POTI!!! NOW!!!

USS Mount Whitney arrives in Georgian port of Poti


05/09/2008 19:50 SEVASTOPOL, September 5 (RIA Novosti) - The third U.S. Navy vessel to bring humanitarian aid to Georgia arrived in the Black Sea port of Poti on Friday, a Russian navy source said.
The USS Mount Whitney, which passed through the Bosporus on Wednesday, brought various supplies, including blankets, hygiene kits and baby food to become the first NATO ship to arrive in Poti since the Russian-Georgian conflict.
Two previous ships, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Dallas and USS McFaul docked in the Georgian port of Batumi.
The White House announced Thursday a $1 billion economic aid package for war-ravaged Georgia.
The Black Sea Fleet source also said the flagship of the U.S. Sixth Fleet was big enough to carry heavy weapons, which - the Russian military believes - is probably the main part of the delivery.
An intelligence source said Russia was scrutinizing the vessel. "Very soon it will be clear, what the ship has really brought to Georgia," the source said.
The Blue Ridge class ship is a command and control vessel, which, the source said, coordinates the group of NATO ships in the Black Sea also including two U.S., one Spanish, one German and one Polish vessel.
Lt. Col. John Dorrian, a spokesman for the US European Command, said Friday that Russian peacekeepers would not be allowed to examine the cargo as the port of Poti is on sovereign Georgian territory.
Russia's Foreign Ministry said Friday that the overall deadweight of NATO ships can exceed the limit set by international agreements and added that no military action is planned against the vessels.
The U.S. aid is being provided to Georgia after it launched an assault on South Ossetia in an attempt to regain control over the republic, which split from Tbilisi in the early 1990s.
Moscow subsequently launched an operation to "force Georgia to accept peace," which was concluded on August 12. Since then more than 400 metric tons of U.S. aid has been shipped and flown to Georgia amid disputes over the NATO presence in the Black Sea and Moscow's recognition of the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, a second separatist Georgian republic.

[edit] Recent events


On 22 August 2005, McFaul was involved in a minor collision with USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG-81) off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida. Both ships suffered minor damage, and no injuries were reported. Both ships returned to their homeport at Naval Station Norfolk under their own power.
On 16 February 2007, McFaul was awarded the 2006 Battle "E" award.[3]
On 24 August 2008, McFaul arrived in Batumi, Georgia, as part of Operation Assured Delivery to "deliver humanitarian relief supplies...as part of the larger United States response to the government of Georgia request for humanitarian assistance" in the wake of the 2008 South Ossetia war.[4] McFaul offloaded nearly 155,000 pounds of supplies—including hygiene items, baby food and care supplies, bottled water, and milk—donated by the U.S. Agency for International Development.[4][5]
