The US heats up the atmosphere with spy drones against Russia

The Pentagon told Moscow that it will continue launching its drones despite the claim made by the Russian government.

The United States will continue to fly over the international waters of the Black Sea, Pentagon Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh said in a briefing this Friday.

“We will continue to fly, sail and operate in international waters and spaces where permitted by law,” Singh stated.

The Pentagon's comments came after the Russian Defense Ministry warned about US drone flights over the Black Sea. According to the ministry, such flights “considerably” increase the possibility of incidents between the drones themselves and with aircraft belonging to the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Such a fact “increases the risk of direct confrontation” between NATO and Moscow, and the responsibility for this will fall on the member countries of that Alliance, the organization warned.

Russia takes action

The Russian Ministry of Defense reported this Friday about the growing presence of American unmanned aerial vehicles over the Black Sea.

The drones' missions consist of designating targets for high-precision weapons supplied to the Armed Forces of Ukraine by Western States. “This indicates the growing involvement of the US and NATO countries in the Ukraine conflict on the side of the kyiv regime,” the organization noted.

According to the ministry, such flights “considerably” increase the possibility of incidents between the drones themselves and aircraft belonging to the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Such a fact “increases the risk of direct confrontation” between NATO and Moscow, and the responsibility for this will fall on the member countries of the Alliance, he warned.

For his part, the Russian Defense Minister, Andrei Beloúsov, tasked the General Staff of the country's Armed Forces with presenting proposals for measures aimed at "responding to provocations" in an operational manner.
