Hey! We're sending the Navy to Georgia!

No, this time we're talking about the other Georgia, and the US Navy making a 'scheduled' visit:
The American embassy in Georgia says a U.S. Navy destroyer is making a routine visit to the country's port of Batumi.
The USS Barry is the latest U.S. warship to visit the Caucasus country since its August war with Russia.
An embassy spokesman says the ship is part of U.S. Navy's 6th Fleet based in Naples, Italy, and arrived Saturday at the Black Sea port. The official spoke on customary condition of anonymity.
He says the ship is not carrying humanitarian or military aid, and he dismissed speculation that the visit was timed to coincide with next week's arrival of Russian warships in Venezuela.
