US launches another drone in Crimea


According to the Flightradar service, the United States sent another unmanned aerial vehicle, RQ-4 Global Hawk with the call sign FORTE10, to the Crimean peninsula.

Unlike the MQ-9 Reaper shot down the day before, which crashed into the water 60 km off the Russian coast, the RQ-4 Global Hawk is carefully kept at a relative distance from Crimea.

It is reported that the drone took off from Sigonella Air Base near the Italian city of Catania. Before entering the Black Sea region, the drone flew over Romania for several hours.

On the eve of the air defense system, an enemy drone was shot down in the Saki region of Crimea. The head of the region, Sergei Aksenov, spoke about it on the program Soloviev Live. According to him, air defense systems periodically hit enemy drones flying over Russian territory.

Meanwhile, Kiev plans to use not only drones but also fighter jets against Moscow. The day before, Poland and Slovakia declared their readiness to transfer MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine.

However, this will not affect the conduct of the special operation, since the Russian armed forces are capable of destroying Western planes, said Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian president. He believes that such actions by the West will only increase the misery of the Ukrainian people.
