UAVs have noticed the United States under construction of the Crimean bridge

87
Unmanned aerial vehicles and reconnaissance aircraft of the United States regularly fly around the southern borders of Russia to monitor changes in the grouping of troops and forces of the Southern Military District (YuVO), as well as the construction of the Crimean Bridge, said the 4 Army commander of the Air Force and Air Defense General Lieutenant Victor Sevostyanov.


According to the commander, US strategic drones Global Hawk and RS-135 and P-8A Poseidon manned reconnaissance aircraft regularly fly in the army’s area of ​​responsibility.

UAVs have noticed the United States under construction of the Crimean bridge


Obviously, the main task is to promptly identify changes in the grouping of troops and forces of the Southern Military District. I do not exclude that foreign intelligence services are also interested in the pace of construction of the Crimean Bridge
- he said.

The main routes of their flights run along the Black Sea coast from the western part of the Crimean peninsula all the way to Sochi. This year, the fighters of the association performed more than 100 flights to escort American reconnaissance aircraft, while in more than 70% of cases it was about drones.

The Krymsky Bridge with a length of 19 km is being built as part of the federal target program "Social and Economic Development of the Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol up to 2020" without attracting extrabudgetary funding. The beginning of the movement of cars on the bridge is scheduled for December 2018, the trains - for December 2019, transmits TASS.

        It is unlikely that they greatly violate our space. Most likely, as usual, they keep near the border, and come only if there are no fighters nearby.
        Who is in the know? In the strait where a ship of any country can go, drones are allowed by international law?
        Here I see a danger - an American drone, disguised as Ukrainian, can strike a bridge. The United States benefits from aggravating relations with Ukraine.

        It is unlikely that they fly in our space. But, obviously, we have under our nose what we are obliged to keep under control. It would be nice when playing with these scouts to play with electronic warfare, for example. Or tickle their nerves somehow.

          I think that if you really flew, then you would have centered on something long ago. A drone, in essence, is just a very powerful object. I read that in the event of a loss of communication after a minute or two, self-detonation works. And in the Second Chechen, when even in three kilometers the convoy passed with a "veil", our TV stopped working. And I think that in the case of the “traitor”, you can configure the headlight of the Su-27 to suppress the signal. So it seems to me that our airplane flies itself about 30 kilometers away and does not bother anyone, and then the brainless bird suddenly explodes.

        To shoot down is too noisy and you won’t stink. But the REBs could jam them and drop them into the sea. And let them prove that it’s us, and not the drone’s breakdown!

    But you pretend to be because you have any profit from this or for free?

    Free, for they are already tired and tired of so smart, but very primitive, like you.

    observe changes in the grouping of troops and forces of the Southern Military District (South Military District), as well as the construction of the Crimean Bridge

    Until they violate anything, let them fly themselves, ours to study. Well, if not, they will fly over and not be knocked down, then there is an example of Rust and everyone remembers him. Epaulettes and posts will fly just like that. And the Crimean bridge is being built almost live, what is there to hide?

      The Crimean bridge was mentioned here in order to increase the hatred of this drone. They have been flying for a long time, so with the same success it was possible to put some kind of Rosa Khutor here. It’s also a strategic object and ours is everything.

    Here is an example of manipulation and programming, even if not neuro. From the title and content it clearly follows that drones, and even those belonging to the United States, brazenly fly into our airspace and revolve around the bridge. And our falcons only accompany them. Just right to start screaming: how long! Shoot the bastards!

    And now attention, this is what disappeared from the full article:

    He added that during the flights no violations of the state border were noted, the minimum distance from the border is 10-15 km.

    Isn't it, a couple of extra lines - and a completely different meaning.

      the minimum distance from the border is 10-15 km.

        And with something you decided that the border runs along the edge of land and not along the edge of territorial waters?

        Judging by the fact that Moscow has once again slowed down the chaos of the USA with the embassies of the Russian Federation, I won’t be surprised at anything, even if they let another Rust go to Moscow, at the next corn-mill ... then cry for it ... Worse there is no cowardly and not decisive commander ...

        The Kerch bridge is located on the territory of the Russian Federation, both coasts belong to the Russian Federation and if US drones are spotted there, then they are in the airspace of the Russian Federation ... Territorial waters are 22,2 km from the coast and all that is above them is the airspace of the country to which they belong. ..Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Peru and a number of other states unilaterally increased the size of their territorial waters and the Russian Federation does not prevent anyone from doing the same to stop this mess at the border.

    You are with them, they are with you. Normal everyday work. Everything is in neutral space.
    For those with hysteria, I advise you to turn to a psychologist, Maybe a psychiatrist.
    And then there were precedents. In the United States, James Forrestal. Do you think that in Russia there are none?

    Practice falling to your knees, letting out a tear, and lamenting "saviors from Putin's tyranny." Well, or there, “Farewell, unwashed Russia, the country of slaves” - pick up the repertoire, in general. Then arrange a performance at the US Embassy, ​​maybe they will give a residence permit, or maybe a grant. If you kiss the ambassador's shoe on time, the green card is simply guaranteed.
