U.S. Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel (L) and Romania's Defence Minister Mircea Dusa attend a joint media briefing in the Black Sea port of Constanta June 5, 2014. Hagel visited the U.S. cruiser Vella Gulf on rotational duty in the Black Sea, before making his way to Normandy to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The United States will strengthen its presence in the Black Sea region using part of a $1 billion fund promised to NATO allies on Russia's borders, and will continue to send warships to the area, Hagel said in Romania on Thursday. Hagel is the latest high-ranking American official to visit Europe since Russia's annexation of Crimea, as Washington looks to reassure allies jittery about Moscow's intentions in its former Cold War backyard.
