RQ-4 Global Hawk drone. Off for another $2.5 million 10 hour provocation trip to prank #Russia #Crimea, no doubt

I put the images of the drone which was shot down in the main pics

Like all other flying pests, it was probably the best thing to happen…

it's why folks from #CA poop on the streets and the police don't care about the #homeless #addicts in #NewYork

At least two of these fly every day and proves #NATO is an obsolete failure……

☝️Despite #Russia’s announcement of the withdrawal of its troops from the borders with #Ukraine starting from today, there are no grounds to believe the de-escalation is to happen soon (thread) ⤵️…
In fact, only the personnel is to be withdrawn to their permanent bases. All the military equipment is staying near the eastern border with #Ukraine. This means that there is still danger that troops will be quickly pulled back again whenever the #Kremlin decides on it.
These facts confirm that still #RussiaEscalates its aggression against #Ukraine:
◾️#Russia keeps refusing bilateral negotiations with Ukraine on the escalation — #Putin agreed to meet the President of Ukraine but explicitly mentioned that discussing Donbas is out of the question;

The current dangerous escalation of the civil war in #Donbas and conflicts of #Russia with #Ukraine and the West demonstrates importance of peaceful resolution of these conflicts and prevention of a war between Russia and Ukraine.
Russian military power display near #Ukraine & statements by Putin's aides about possibility of war with Ukraine & seizure of its large part appear to be asymmetric escalation in response to Zelensky's failure to implement Minsk Agreements & Biden policy towards #Russia & Ukraine
This means that #Russia is now willing to use its military forces against #Ukraine openly and beyond #Donbas, in contrast to its covert direct military interventions in #Crimea in February-March 2014 & in Donbas in August 2014 and February 2015. #Donbass

Pakistan Strategic Forum’s Air & Open Source Intelligence Board is starting our thread HERE on the military situation & tensions b/w #Russia, #NATO, #UnitedStates and #Ukraine.
Pakistani citizens have no reason to be alarmed as the conflict will be a conventional one. We hope.
Russia is continuing to send military equipment to the border areas, as can be seen from this video from today
#Russia is closing part of the Black Sea and the Kerch strait for all foreign ships from next week until October. This is a MAJOR escalation.

However impossible it seems, #Russian rhetoric concerning the escalation in #Ukraine is losing touch with reality even more. 🇷🇺Security Council Secretary says 🇺🇦 may “attack 🇷🇺” by starting military operations against #Crimea and prepare terrorist acts in 🇷🇺 and other countries⤵️
😡But what have the #Russian forces really been doing in the past few days while blaming #Ukraine for the escalation? Not contributing to peace, for sure:
📌moving the 15 Russian ships of the naval forces into the waters of the Black Sea under the guise of military drills;
📌blocking the movement of people across the demarcation line in the #Donetsk region;
📌remote mining of the territory within the humanitarian road corridor next to Mayorske checkpoint with a UAV on April 13, which put the lives of civilians at threat;

#Russia military build-up along border w/#Ukraine, in #Crimea "concerning & certainly not conducive to a sense of stability" per @PentagonPresSec

"We're mindful of the specific threat that the Russian military poses"
#Russia should "tell the world what they're be more transparent" per @PentagonPresSec

"The fact that they haven't been transparent is only causing more instability, more insecurity" he says "We're watching this very very carefully"

Update #Ukraine .
Die Lage im #Donbass im Überblick:
- Russland verlegt seine S-300-Abwehrsysteme an die Grenze.
- LDNR erhebt schwere Vorwürfe gegen die Ukraine.
- Kiew will an NATO-Missionen teilnehmen und Truppen in den Irak schicken.
Details im Thread 👇
Wie auch schon gestern erwähnt, eskalierte am 03.04. die Lage im #Donbass . Auch die OSCE verzeichnete einen rasanten Anstieg an Waffenruheverletzungen, die auch die Durchschnittswerte von 2020 um ein Vielfaches übersteigen.
#Ukraine #UkraineRussia #Donbas
Um es noch mal hervorzuheben: die Eskalation kam NICHT überraschend. Kiew hat seit Monaten Truppen an die Trennlinie verlegt, Offensivmanöver geübt und Kriegstechnik eingekauft.
Die "Neuen" unter uns finden in den früheren Threads die Hintergründe👇
