US military says Russian air defenses shot down drone

The US military has said it believes an unarmed drone that went missing over the Libyan capital last month was shot down by Russian air defenses. The US Africa Command is demanding the return of the wreckage, stating the drone had been part of an operation conducted in Libya to assess the area’s security and monitor for violent extremist activity.

It sounds like Russia is trying to establish a pro-Russian government Cold War style. It should be noted, who ever shot down the GlobalHawk didn't know it was unmaned, and could have easily shot down and killed American Airmen.

Maybe Rhiyad should REALLY talk to the Russians about their air defences !! LMFAO YEMENI camel jockeys can take out “US Protected Saudi oil refineries” with paper planes,,,, And somehow Libyans, the proud owners of slave markets and a US/UK backed failed state can take out US drones at will ?!?!? Easily the most entertaining year to date
