Sergei Naryshkin is the head of Russia’s foreign intelligence service. He said that Russia had the technology to recover the fragments of the drone. These fragments are believed to be located off the west coast Crimea.

Russian jets flew in a’reckless manner’

According to US officials, Russia may have already sent ships there.

John Kirby, spokesperson for the National Security Council, stated that the US will take steps to safeguard the information and “minimise any attempt by anyone else to exploit the drone for useful content.”

After a Russian Su-27 fighter plane poured fuel on the drone, the US claimed it dropped it in the ocean and hit its propeller while it flew in international airspace. American officials are currently working to declassify surveillance footage from drone in order to prove this.

Russia denies that it caused the accident. This has led to one of the worst escalations in relations between the two countries for many years.
