      ... Yeah, and such persistent "flying" of the Germans ended with the Soviet tank biathlon in Berlin.
      Long time ago we didn’t get into our snout, and behave with impunity.

        It would be better if there were no biathlon, all this is paid for by our lives. Yes, and that time we fought with the Germans and now we are offered to fight with the same Russians.

          Let me disagree with you.
          I don’t consider the Maidan jumper to be Russian, who bomb houses, kindergartens, schools, etc. ...
          Russian Ukrainians are those who fight in the ranks of the DPR / LPR against the pro-American, Nazi regime of Petruhi and Co. in / in Ukraine.
          I am very sorry that the Great Stalin did not have time to finish off the pro-Western Nazi ukrov, for it was from there that an infection of various kinds always went and goes.

            I also began to relate to jumping. Over these 4 years, my attitude to Khokhlov has changed by 180 degrees, and to be honest, sometimes I want to ride a rink all over this Bandera region on my emotions. But it so happened that now half of those on the other side of the trench are the same Russians from southeastern Ukraine. It's a shame - that these people could form the basis of the fighters of New Russia, if someone moved on time.

          In order to create something like this, you need to have the best universities in the world (ivy league), collect bit by bit the most intelligent, gifted young scientists. Rogozhin’s son led the IL. Do you really think that in R.F. is it possible to create something at this level ?!

    ... The American UAV carried out reconnaissance in the Donbass and near the Black Sea borders of Russia ...

    It's just a compulsive invitation - well, shoot someone down ...
    ... He made at least 4 flights off the Russian coast “along the line from the westernmost point of Crimea, along its southwestern and southern coasts, as well as the Krasnodar Territory right up to Sochi” ...

    Looming in broad daylight. What prevents some stupid crow from getting in the way of the drone. That he would "accidentally" dive into the Black Sea ...

But intelligence activity does not stop even for a minute, and this must be understood and this is not news.

    This drone can conduct reconnaissance at a depth of up to 300 km thanks to the new MS-177 multispectral sensor. This module is capable of scanning data in the optical (visible) and infrared ranges. It is also equipped with the MP-RTIP. Multi-platform radar, which allows it to track a fairly vast territory (up to 18 km in open sources) from high altitude (up to 400 km). Recently, something they have often visited us. All this is not good., For the pepelats is a serious thing in terms of aerial reconnaissance.
