The Su-30 fighter was raised to intercept the American drone MQ-9A Reaper

The Su-30 fighter belonging to the duty forces of the Russian air defense was raised to intercept the American reconnaissance and strike drone MQ-9A Reaper. A NATO aircraft was seen over the Black Sea area, and an aircraft of the Russian Armed Forces was sent to identify it and prevent it from crossing the Russian border.

This was reported in the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense.



The US aircraft was detected using airspace control tools. The Russian Defense Ministry notes that a drone belonging to the United States Air Force was heading for the state border of our country. But when near the American drone turned out to be a Russian fighter, the UAV abruptly changed the direction of flight and turned in the opposite direction. After that, the aircraft of the Russian Armed Forces also returned to the airfield from which it took off.

The defense department of the Russian Federation notes that the fighter pilot acted in full accordance with the norms of international law governing the use of airspace over neutral waters. The pilot behaved as correctly as possible, without violating any safety rules.

Earlier, at least four NATO military aircraft were seen near the Ukrainian Danube port of Izmail. They tracked the movements of foreign merchant ships that entered this harbor.

      Now it is being studied along with Storm Shadow.

      The head of the Military-Technical Center "Tsarskie Wolves" pointed out that this would allow the Russian defense industry to find the most effective ways to deal with Storm Shadow.
      "I'm glad that it was our unit that did it. Now our air defense will shoot down this thing, and it will gradually become useless", - said Rogozin.

    Yes, I think that if the pilot described himself with fuel, it would be wonderful. But apparently the operators have already been trained in such a maneuver and decided not to accept the golden rain. laughing

    In the current military and political situation, it would be more expedient to track him from the ground, and shoot him down if he violates the border. Why these useless takeoffs? The resource is wasted. It is clear that the drone will turn away. Such maneuvers were appropriate when detecting targets undetectable by radar 50 years ago. And now from afar you can see who flies. Time of war, there is nothing to perform ritual dances. Broke - sorry. "d. Rak pvoshnik shot at everything he saw" ... Or, as Prigogine put it?

    Why the hell don't drones shoot down? What regulations are they approved in the airspace? Is it that any unmanned piece of iron with a motor or a balloon can fly freely in international spaces inviolably? Can some unknown fighter fly the same way?

      First of all, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. There is a 12 mile zone that you cannot fly into without the threat of being shot down, and everything else is free space for flights.
      Yes, and there are markings on the drones, so that the interceptor can always personally verify the ownership of the aircraft.

        First of all, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

        And what does international law say about Nazism and its support? What is written about the genocide of the population? What can be applied to collaborators and sponsors?
        Such UAVs must be shot down as soon as possible, when they approach a distance from which reconnaissance can be carried out ... This maritime law was developed in a shaggy year and applies to those motor boats that got lost in the water area without navigational instruments ...
        These drones are acting against the interests of Russia, and Russian interests are more important and more important than rights sucked out of your finger ... 300 billion dollars frozen on the basis of rights? Gas pipelines rushed by rights? Was the dam destroyed according to the convention?
        Today, the rights of the strong operate in the world. And it's time for Russia to fight at full strength, and not chew snot when there is an opportunity to hit the enemy more painfully.

          The Convention on the Law of the Sea was ratified by the Russian Federation and is not questioned by our leadership. If you don't like it, then don't break it, but get out of it. After all, Russia is a sovereign country: if it wants, it signs conventions; if it wants, it withdraws from them. But while the convention has not been withdrawn, it is necessary to at least pretend to comply with it, otherwise it will turn out to be some kind of surreal.

      "Is it that any unmanned piece of iron with a motor or a balloon can fly freely in international spaces inviolably?"

      I'll tell you more - any conditionally private piece of iron with a motor can fly thousands of pieces even in space, preventing observatories around the world from conducting observations. As long as you work in the USA. And nothing, everyone endures

    that a drone belonging to the United States Air Force was heading for the state border of our country. But when a Russian fighter appeared near the American drone, the UAV abruptly changed its direction of flight and turned in the opposite direction.

    Why drive him away? Wait until he crosses the border and knock him to hell. Another thing is if he starts crawling along the border ...

    But this is unlikely .... Transports to dill ports with weapons both roam and go - so what? NATO reconnaissance aviation "hangs" around the clock over the Black Sea, and over the territory from which it monitors the ground situation in the zone and NVO - so what? Or maybe you forgot the words of the person holding the position of the Supreme High Command about how they pulled the troops away from Kyiv in order to create the basis for negotiations with the Ukrainian Reich? Do you think differently now? Nevermind - the same situation, nothing changes, you'll see .... That is why ours will not touch them either at sea or in the air .... Well, if only some next device supplied by the West does not please, for example, the Spasskaya Tower, but I suppose that Putin's partners will not allow the European Fuhrer, otherwise these partners may not have a partner - he will be "disappointed", or something else .... sad

    Why can't our people say that the drone is controlled by a Ukrainian operator in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And knock down. We have irrefutable and very secret data on this matter. But we will not show them to you, of course.
    Ah, not Ukrainian? Ah, not in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine? We express our sincere regret

    The American reconnaissance and strike drone MQ-9A Reaper is used to bring enemy "Ukrainian" strike BECs into the area of ​​operations and target them, so they must be driven and, if possible, "quietly dropped."

    As one hero from the unforgettable novel by Ilf and Petrov had to say - "... You are amazingly quick-witted - dear stool hunter ...". And this is verbatim, in contrast to the lover of passing off his maxims as quotations from the classics of Soviet literature. bully
