US Military: Russian Jet Collides with US Drone

Russian fighter jet forced down a US military Surveillance Drone

A Russian fighter jet forced down a US military “Reaper” surveillance drone over the Black Sea Tuesday, the US military said. The US condemned the jet’s “reckless” collision with one of its drones over the Black Sea. The US said that a Russian fighter jet struck the propeller of the surveillance drone in “brazen violation of international law.”

Moscow said the American drone sharply maneuvered and crashed after an encounter with Russian jets near Crimea, but insisted that Russian fighter jets didn’t fire weapons or hit the drone. The Russian Defense Ministry said their fighters from air defense forces on duty were in the air to identify the “intruder” over the Black Sea.
