CRAZY VIDEO: US Drone Filmed Attack by Russian Fighter Jets
The Kremlin’s narrative is now kaput.
The world was already very much on edge. The last thing that we needed was to have the Kremlin start downing American military aircraft.
But that’s precisely what occurred just days ago over the Black Sea, as a pair of Russian fighter jets harassed, and then took out, a US Reaper drone. Now, as Russia attempts to retrieve the high tech device from the depths of the sea, the Pentagon is releasing video taken by the drone that disproves the Kremlin’s account of the incident.
U.S. officials have released video that shows a Russian Su-27 fighter jet colliding with the propeller of a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone.
The video release by the U.S. military’s European Command on Thursday came amid a race to secure the downed American aircraft.
Russian ships are at the MQ-9 drone crash site in the Black Sea, a U.S. defense official told Fox News Thursday. Russia sent ships to search the debris field almost immediately following the crash.
The banter back and forth between the two nations showed a great disparity between accounts.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin summarized the incident Wednesday in a press conference, saying, “Two Russian jets dumped fuel on an unmanned U.S. MQ-9 aircraft conducting routine operations in international airspace. And one Russian jet intercepted and hit our MQ-9 aircraft, resulting in a crash.”
Austin sharply criticized the Russian military for its actions, stating that the Black Sea incident was “a part of a pattern of aggressive and risky and unsafe actions by Russian pilots in international airspace.”
Russia has previously denied that the aircraft touched one another, and accused the U.S. of unnecessarily escalating the issue.
The stunning video was released late in the week, and was soon trending on social media.
