Kremlin Media Claims - Russia Locates U.S. Drone - Will Attempt To Retrieve Tech and Data

 March 17, 2023

Pro-Kremlin publishers claim that Russian forces are on the verge of starting a recovery attempt on the downed U.S. Air Force drone, that was forced down and crashed into the Black Sea this week. The Pentagon said, an MQ-9 ‘Reaper’ drone was a “total loss” this week, after it was rammed by a Russian jet, damaging its propeller and causing it to lose power.

Russia still maintains its position, that the drone fell out of the air spontaneously, and they were not responsible.

This is despite the U.S. releasing footage of Russian jets harassing the drone, by spraying jet fuel on it, and even colliding with the drone to damage it. Nineteen passes by the Russian planes, is not mere coincidence. It was forced down.

For the purpose of reverse-engineering technology, or retrieval of any that data recording onboard that wasn’t successfully erase itself before it hit the water, a race appears to be on, to recover the remains of the unmanned vehicle. Russia or its allies, China and Iran, apparently see it as valuable.

On Wednesday, The United States treid to hinder any recovery, saying the water the drone would have landed on would be too deep. However, at least in pretense, a Russian spokesman said “I am hoping that it will be a success” and was willing to give the recovery an effort.  Making the claim they are reaching the drone, and are nearly ready to attempt a recovery, reportedly Russian sources that are Kremlin-linked, have asserted that Russian forces-

“may retrieve the US MQ-9 Reaper drone from the Black Sea. This is despite reports from the Pentagon that it has already erased all sensitive information from it”.

Until someone had gone down to have a look, the outlet reported, that the drone retrieval was considered worth trying as nobody could be sure there was nothing valuable to be retrieved.  The propaganda outlet cited what they described as a “military expert”, who said it was his understanding that a search ship had already reached the area. They further reported, that was likely that Russian “specialists” would be the first on the scene because the United States had no maritime assets in the area.

Not the only pro-Russian outlet, to make such claims, Britain’s Daily Mail, cited a newspaper in Russian-occupied Ukraine that reports, recovery is already underway. The outlet further claims that the remains of the drone were discovered In  the Black Sea at a depth of 2,953ft. allegedly they cited-

 “A source close to the Russian defense ministry” who is said to have remarked: “An underwater robot has descended to the seabed and detected the MQ-9 Reaper at a depth of about 850-900 metres… The deep-water branch of the South Stream gas pipeline runs not far from this area.”

Russian armed forces and the U.S. have not made further comment on the recovery process. Further, no evidence has been yet provided of the alleged recovery effort. State wire service TASS cited government spokesman Dmitry Peskov who said specialists would raise the craft if deemed necessary. The Russian media seem to follow official remarks from the Kremlin on the recovery of the drone wreckage, with Peskov reportedly stating-

“This is the prerogative of the military. If they deem it necessary to do that in the Black Sea for our interests and for our security, they will deal with that,”

-Dmitry Peskov, Russian Spokesperson

Another case of inaction by the Biden administration, one has to ask – what’s next? Will we be handing over the nuclear codes too? It is unbelievable that the U.S. can have a drone forced down in this case, on film, by Russian pilots and there be essentially “crickets” occurring at the White House.

This administration is outright dangerous, in many tangible ways, especially regarding our national security. China flies surveillance over us without interruption, from coast to coast, our southern border is open to millions - invading us from over 140 country’s (infiltrating our interior with Fentanyl and criminals) and now in the same span of Biden’s’ two years in office, the Russian’s force down a U.S. military surveillance drone – all without any serious response on the part of Joe Biden and his administration. Unbelievable!

2024 NEEDS TO BE A RECKONING – the Democratic left is due. That is, if there is an America anyone can still recognize!

“We need a new generation of leaders who will promote policies that will foster economic growth and alleviate the middle-class squeeze, defend America's national security against those who threaten our people, reform the culture of Washington, D.C., and reassert the constitutional principles that make our country unique.”
