Russia Requests US Flights Near Its Borders To Be Suspended

by Echezona obinna

After an American drone was shot down by Russian fighters over the Black Sea on Wednesday, Moscow’s ambassador to the US urged Washington to halt “hostile” flights close to its border.
Ambassador Anatoly Antonov posted on Telegram, “We assume the United States will refrain from further media speculation and stop aircraft near Russian borders. “We view any use of American weapons in an action as overtly hostile.”

The US military described a Russian fighter jet’s Tuesday manoeuvre as “reckless” after it dropped fuel on an American drone over the Black Sea before crashing into it.

The US European Command said two Russian Su-27 fighters intercepted the unmanned MQ-9 Reaper over international waters and one clipped its propeller.
Russia’s defence ministry said Tuesday it scrambled fighter jets following the detection of a US drone over the Black Sea but denied causing it to crash.

The defence ministry in Moscow said it detected an American MQ-9 drone “over the waters of the Black Sea in the area of the Crimean peninsula” flying “towards the Russian state border”.
