The drone first carried out a mission close to the border with Belarus, probably to monitor the Russian-Biellorussian exercises that are taking place there.
In a second moment, the Global Hawk flew off the coast of Crimea (where is now, 13:00 CET)to monitor the activities that Russia is conducting in the peninsula.
Thank you for this information. Please keep covering these flights since the situation seem to be tensioning…
