As tensions flared over last week’s drone incident, the US sent another drone into the Black Sea. However, this time the drone has kept its distance from Russia. The drone sent this time is a Global Hawk model. Earlier last week the drone that was destroyed by Russia was MQ-9 Reaper model.
According to RT, the United States has resumed the flight of US drones in the Black Sea. Although this was already being said by the country. The MQ-9 Reaper drone flew about 100 km from where it crashed. The flight tracking site says the RQ-4 Global Hawk drone circled Romania’s airspace before heading south and east. The drone has made several turns over the eastern part of the Black Sea. But never came within 100 km of the territory of Crimea.
The drone’s mission in the Black Sea region lasted only two hours. Earlier there was usually a 12 hour shift.
A US official later confirmed to Reuters on condition of anonymity that the Global Hawk-Four drone was conducting the mission. He said that this type of flight was conducted for the first time after the drone crash last Tuesday. However, the Pentagon said earlier that drones were again sent to the Black Sea to monitor Russian naval activity.
