American reconnaissance aircraft continue to explore the border territory of the Russian Federation.

On Sunday, the US Air Force RC-135W aircraft took to the skies in the UK and carried along to the Russian border near the Pskov and Kaliningrad regions. The RC-135W is capable of detecting radio communications and modes of operation of radio-electronic command and control equipment within 500 kilometers.

Similarly, an unmanned aerial vehicle US Air Force RQ-4B took off from the Sigonella airbase in Sicily and passed along the line of demarcation in the Donbass. It kept within 40-60 kilometers from Belgorod, Voronezh and Rostov regions of Russia.
