“U.S. aircraft shouldn’t be flying near the Russian border; imagine Washington’s reaction if a military Aircraft from a foreign country during ongoing war appeared near New York or San Francisco said Russian Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov on an American drone that crashed in the Black Sea.

According to him, the U.S. has no involvement in the black Sea, and the drone was collecting secret information for the Ukrainian military struck by Russian SU-27s over the Black Sea. The Russian defence ministry claims the incident was an act of violation and provoking war.

While being interviewed, Antonov remarked that the U.S. drone was capable of carrying 1700 kilograms of explosives in a single run. “Imagine how another country or Pentagon would react if the drone flew over U.S. territory.

Replying to the Pentagon questioning the engagement of Russian pilots, the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. remarked that their pilots acted professionally and no weapons were used during the incident.

An “Incident” involving a U.S. Air Force MQ-9 Reaper Drone conducting a flight over the Black Sea; some reports that the Drone had been Shot Down; however, an Investigation is ongoing.

According to U.S. European Command, a Russian Su-27 intercepted a U.S. Air Force MQ-9 Reaper yesterday morning while conducting a flight Mission over the Black Sea region close to the Russian border.

As Russian warplanes reached the reaper, it was supposed that the Russian Aircraft collided with the Drone, drowning the UAV into the Black Sea.

It is still unknown whether the Russian Su-27 suffered “Unknown Damage”. After sinking the American drone, the Aircraft landed at an Airbase in Crimea.

According to the statement given by the U.S. defence department, at approximately 7:03 AM CET, a Russian Su-27 aircraft intercepted the U.S. drone.

They damaged an MQ-9’s propeller, leading the U.S. forces’ controller to shoot the MQ-9 down in international waters. Many times before the crash, the Su-27s spilt fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 dangerously, environmentally unsound, and unprofessionally.”

Per the preliminary unconfirmed reports based on the radio chatter, The Russian Navy has recovered the U.S.-built drone that crashed in the Black Sea. The reason is it crashed too close to Cremia.

The peninsula is a hot topic of the dispute between Russia and Ukraine, which Putin forces annexed in 2014. Antonov also described the situation as what if a drone reaches San Francisco or New York.

Every country has the right to defend its territory, and that’s what Russia did after The U.S. imposed a direct threat to Russian security by sending drones to the region close to the black Sea.
