A US drone flew a reconnaissance sortie over Donbass lasting several hours, the Interfax – AVN (Military News Agency) reported on July 17 citing specialized western web sites that follow military flights.
A US Air Force RQ-4A Global Hawk drone with the call sign UAVGH000 flew the sortie. The American drone was flying from north to south along the contact line at an altitude of 16,700 meters. The drone did not cross the contact line. Due to its ability to perform reconnaissance to a depth of 300 km, the Global Hawk flying along this route could observe the entire territory of the DPR and the LPR as well as border areas of Russia.
The US is providing comprehensive aid to the Ukrainian authorities. This aid includes both political support and material assistance as well as support in training troops and military specialists.
