The drone was raised from the American military base Sigonella, located on the Italian island of Sicily. In the direction of Russia, the unmanned vehicle was moving through the airspace of Greece and Bulgaria, then over the Black Sea.
Known for the onboard number of the UAV: 10-2043. The southernmost point of the reconnaissance flight was the area of Sochi, which allowed the American drone to monitor not only the territory of Kuban, but also, for example, the Republic of Abkhazia.
Earlier it was reported that two US Navy aircraft are conducting reconnaissance at the southern Black Sea air borders of the Russian Federation: EP-3E Aries II and P-8A Poseidon.
One can imagine what kind of hysterics would have risen in the States themselves if Russian reconnaissance drones and reconnaissance planes were actually on a rotational basis replacing each other at US borders.
