❗️Беспилотник США MQ-9 Reaper найден у Севастополя на глубине около 900 метров, об этом ForPost сообщил собственный источник, близкий к Минобороны РФ и знакомый с деталями операции.
В районе падения американского военно-разведывательного аппарата дежурят силы ВМФ России. «На дно моря опустился подводный робот, который обнаружил MQ-9 Reaper на глубине около 850–900 метров. Недалеко от этой зоны проходит глубоководная ветка газопровода «Южный поток»», сообщил собеседник ForPost.

The Russian naval fleet remains on patrol in the crash area of the military military intelligence device.

Don't know if the timestamp is local to the ForPost correspondent, Moscow, or adjusted to my time zone, CDST.

No claim made by me as to reliability. But they have that tech and presumably have it in one of there few actual large military bases. Esp. since it would have been useful in checking the Kerch' bridge for damage.
