Close Call: Russian Fighter Jet Almost Shot Down British Surveillance Plane Off Crimea Coast

TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: A leaked classified Pentagon document reveals that a Russian fighter jet almost shot down a British surveillance plane off the coast of Crimea in September 2022. The incident was described as a “near-shoot down” of the UK RC-135 reconnaissance plane.

The British defense minister had previously disclosed the incident to Parliament but did not describe it as a near-shootdown.

The leaked document also details several other incidents involving Russian interceptions of surveillance flights by US, British, and French aircraft between October 2022 and February 2023.

The incidents highlight the delicate balancing act of Western military officials in supporting Ukraine while avoiding direct conflict with Russia.

There’s also an issue of whether or not providing Ukraine with intelligence to fight Russia violates international law and undermines diplomatic efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully.
