A new mission by “FORTE12″ (USAF Northrop Grumman RQ-4B, reg. 04-2015), departed from Sigonella, is in progress over Ukraine.
This is not the first time carried out in these areas but it now appears particularly interesting:
1) the drone arrived over Ukraine following a route that did not include the overflight of the Black Sea (where a vast Russian naval exercise is underway)
2) the areas affected by the flight of the Global Hawk are those from which a possible Russian assault appears most plausible (the Belarusian border, the Crimean border, the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine).
