US to assess feasibility of further drone operations in the Black Sea
The Americans want to reduce the risks of conflict with the Russian military in the region.
This was reported by CNN.
According to US journalists, the US is now assessing the feasibility of drone operations. Following the incident in the Black Sea, the US wants to reduce the risks of conflict with the Russian military in the region.
The US military is "scrutinising" drone routes and assessing how best to reduce the risks of conflict with Russian forces, which regularly fly their fighter jets to and from Crimea. The Pentagon has asked the European Command to justify further surveillance flights in the region, particularly to assess risks.
The US did not cease flights over the Black Sea after the incident with the Russian fighter jet. On the contrary, they sent a new drone to the same region at once. So that it could survey the crash site and track Russia's actions.
It is worth recalling that on 14 March a US reconnaissance drone was damaged by a Russian Su-27 fighter. As a result of the incident, the drone had to be sunk.
