US conveys “strong objections” over Russian collision with American drone over Black Sea

The US State Department summoned Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov to convey “our strong objections”, department spokesman Ned Price said after a Russian Su-27 fighter jet downed an American military drone over the Black Sea, reported CNN.
Price also stated that US Ambassador to Russia, Lynne Tracy “has conveyed a strong message to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” On Tuesday, a Russian fighter jet forced down a US Air Force drone over the Black Sea on Tuesday after damaging the propeller of the American MQ-9 Reaper drone, according to American forces.
The Reaper drone and two Russian Su-27 aircraft were flying over international waters over the Black Sea on Tuesday when one of the Russian jets “intentionally” flew in front of and dumped fuel on the unmanned drone several times, a statement from US European Command said.
