Russian pilots taunted the United States Tuesday, through acts of reckless aerial maneuvers which included, flybys in front of our MQ-9 Reaper drone, dumping gasoline on our drone and eventually downing the drone in the Black Sea.
The cost of the reaper comes in roughly at 32 million U.S. dollars. According to U.S. officials the reaper was conducting its routine flight schedule when the Russians intercepted it. Reports from the State Department said that the drone was flying over international water’s but Russian officials have claimed the contrary.
Russian officials have repudiated all responsibility for the downing of the reaper, Wednesday, and have announced that there are operations underway to salvage the debris of the drone.
