The US Department of Defense released footage from a video camera fitted to the MQ-9 Reaper drone that crashed in the Black Sea on March 14. They clearly show a Russian Su-27 fighter jet dropping fuel on an American reconnaissance vehicle.
Recall that almost immediately after the fall of the drone, the American military command accused the Russian pilots of unprofessionalism. According to the American side, the Russian pilot first damaged one of the propeller blades of the drone, then began to dump fuel at the rate of the MQ-9 Reaper.
The Russian Defense Ministry denied all charges, calling the pilot’s actions professional, and Russian military correspondents even offered to pay the pilot 1 million rubles.
It should be noted that images released by the Pentagon also clearly show the fuel spill from a Russian aircraft. In the last seconds of the video you can also see the damaged propeller blade.
A Russian pilot has gone to great lengths to launch a reconnaissance drone from a country that provides military information to the Nazi regime in Kiev. It is precisely because of the availability of this information that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are able to inflict the most sensitive blows on Russian troops, as a result of which Russian soldiers die.
If the United States is considering unprofessional actions to protect the sovereignty of the country, then, as a well-known footballer has said in the past, that’s their problem.
