According to the agency, as the drone was moving towards the Russian border in Crimea, Russian warplanes were lifted into the air to detect the intruder. The drone, which went into uncontrolled flight due to sudden maneuver, lost altitude and fell into the water.

The Ministry of Defense emphasized that the Russian fighters did not come into contact with the MQ-9, did not use airborne weapons and returned safely to the base airspace.
