Washington stops flying its strategic drones over the Black Sea


The United States has completely grounded its Global Hawk strategic aircraft over the Black Sea after the Reaper drone incident.
According to Flightradar24 data, the last time an American Global Hawk drone flew over the Black Sea, off the coast of Crimea, was on March 21. Since then, these US drones based in Sicily have not entered the airspace over the Black Sea. At the same time, during the entire previous period since the beginning of the Russian special military operation, these American drones have carried out an average of eight to ten reconnaissance flights per month over the sea area opposite the Crimea.


The information available to the site indicates that, from March 21 to April 20, the Global Hawk made only three flights from an air base in Sicily, but all of them took place within the borders of Romanian airspace at a distance of more than 400 km from the Crimean peninsula, i.e. Outside the radar coverage area, these drones are capable of receiving radar images of the terrain with a maximum range of 200 km.

For his part, an informed source told "Novosti" correspondent that the last time a US Global Hawk drone flew over the Black Sea off the Crimean Peninsula was on March 21.

The source said: “After the incident of the American Reaper drone, which fell in the waters of the Black Sea on April 14, only two more flights of the Global Hawk drone were carried out over the Black Sea - on March 17 and March 21 - both at a distance of no less than 140 km from Southern coast of Crimea.

He added, "We have made it clear that such actions are inconsistent with the United States' obligations under the United Nations Charter and the United Nations Convention on Privileges and Immunities."

Dujarric pointed out that they verbally expressed their dissatisfaction through the American mission.

According to leaked government documents obtained by the Washington Post, the United States monitored Guterres' conversations with senior United Nations officials and world leaders.
