March 21, 2023

A RUSSIAN fighter jet has intercepted a pair of US nuclear bombers as Vladimir Putin ordered his own planes into the sky. It comes after Russian fighter jets dumped fuel on a US Reaper drone before crashing into it above the Black Sea. After that “the foreign military aircraft moved away from the Russian Federation state border, the Russian fighter returned to its base airfield". It shows one of the Russian fighter jets zooming towards the drone before flying above it - dumping fuel on it. The Russians said the drone manoeuvred sharply and crashed into water after its fighter jets were scrambled to intercept it near Crimea.
