A Russian fighter jet has collided with a US drone, causing the unmanned aircraft to crash into the Black Sea, the American military says.
It says the drone was on a routine mission in international airspace when two Russian jets tried to intercept it.
The US European command said the crash was the result of an “unprofessional act by the Russians”.
US and allied forces will continue to operate in the area, it added. There is no word on the incident from Russia.
Unsurprisingly, the legacy media is using the reported incident to push WWIII propaganda.
Reports said the crash could lead to “unintended escalation.”

ABC News reported:
U.S. European Command labeled the incident as “dangerous” and said it could “lead to miscalculation and unintended escalation.”
“At approximately 7:03 AM (CET), one of the Russian Su-27 aircraft struck the propeller of the MQ-9, causing U.S. forces to have to bring the MQ-9 down in international waters,” U.S. European Command said in a statement.
“Several times before the collision, the Su-27s dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner,” it added.
EUCOM said the incident “demonstrates a lack of competence in addition to being unsafe and unprofessional.”

Donald Trump Jr. noted the ridiculousness of the US Air Force statement being more concerned about the ‘environmental’ impact and not the potential to spark a WWIII conflict.
The US Air Force issued a statement accusing the Russian aircraft of acting in a “reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner.”
Environmentally unsound. That’s what they’re worried about. Not the start of WWIII.
Trump was right again!

Fake News CNN added:
President Joe Biden was briefed on the incident by national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Tuesday morning, according to National Security Council communications coordinator John Kirby.
Kirby He said it was “not uncommon” for Russian aircraft to intercept US aircraft over the Black Sea, and said there had been other intercepts in recent weeks.
But he said the episode Tuesday was unique in how “unsafe, unprofessional and reckless” the Russian actions were.
CNN has asked the Russian Ministry of Defense for comment.
Russian and US aircraft have operated over the Black Sea during the course of the Ukraine war, but this is the first known such interaction, a potentially dangerous escalation at a critical time in the fighting.
The US has been operating Reaper drones over the Black Sea since before the beginning of the war, using the spy drones to monitor the area. Reaper drones can fly as high as 50,000 feet, according to the Air Force, and they have sensors and capabilities to gather intelligence and perform reconnaissance for extended periods of time, making it an ideal platform to track movements on the battlefield and in the Black Sea.
This story is developing.
We’ll provide further updates as they become available.
The Biden regime and media propagandists will likely beat the war drums louder now, attempting to persuade the American public it’s time to fight Russia.
Last I checked, the Black Sea was nowhere near the American border.
