The Pentagon has recently released footage of an incident that occurred over the Black Sea.
According to the Pentagon, a Russian aircraft was conducting an unsafe intercept of a U.S. air force surveillance drone in international airspace.
The footage, which was captured by the drone’s onboard camera, shows the Russian aircraft flying dangerously close to the drone, causing concern for the safety of the U.S. crew.
This incident is just the latest in a string of similar encounters between Russian and U.S. military aircraft in recent years.
Both sides have accused each other of dangerous and provocative behavior, raising tensions between the two nations.
The release of this footage by the Pentagon is a clear message to Russia that the U.S. will not tolerate such unsafe and aggressive behavior.
It also serves as a warning to other nations that the U.S. is committed to protecting its airspace and ensuring the safety of its military personnel.»Tensions rise as Russia and US engage in dangerous encounters in international airspace«
