The Russian authorities are testing the ground for new ultimatums. The Office of the President of Ukraine considers the bombings of the Nord Streams, the protests in Moldova and the pro-Russian initiatives of the Georgian government to be links in the same chain.
The destruction of the American multi-purpose drone MQ-9 Reaper over the Black Sea is an example of a primitive attempt by the Russian Federation to find new “red lines”. About it wrote on Twitter on March 15, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mykhailo Podolyak.
The adviser to the head of the Presidential Office recalled the “random” cruise missiles in the airspace of European countries and the version of anonymous intelligence officers about the explosions of the Nord Streams.
Russia also “had a hand” in the street protests in Moldova and the initiatives of the Georgian government, he stressed.
All these steps of the Russian authorities are primitive attempts to find new “red lines” and issue ultimatums, Podolyak concluded.
Recall that the destruction of the American drone became known on March 14. The Sky News channel noted that the Su-27 fighter of the Russian Armed Forces deliberately dropped fuel in front of the UAV
The Russian Defense Ministry said that the MQ-9 Reaper went into uncontrolled flight over the Black Sea near Crimea and fell into the water. The US intends to continue surveillance operations in international airspace despite the MQ-9 Reaper incident.
The Pentagon is busy declassifying a video of a Russian Su-27 fighter jet colliding with an MQ-9 Reaper drone. And Russia promises to raise the American MQ-9 drone.
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexei Danilov believes that the downing of the MQ-9 Reaper is a signal of the readiness of Russian President Vladimir Putin to expand the war zone.
