Black Sea incident could dampen Americans’ desire to help Kyiv – CNN

The incident with the American MQ-9 drone that crashed into the Black Sea could influence public opinion in the United States, in the sense that assistance to Ukraine is not a priority national security issue for Washington.

This is stated in the material of the TV channel CNNwhich was published on March 15th. The authors note that the Republican Party has already formed a consensus on this issue.

Both potential presidential candidates – Donald Trump And Ron DeSantis have a negative attitude towards financing Kyiv in the “as much as needed” mode. Therefore, the arrival of one of them in the White House will jeopardize further assistance to Ukraine.

In particular, it is noted that after the incident with the drone, Trump announced his desire to “stop the Third World War.” And DeSantis stated that getting involved in a “territorial conflict” between Ukraine and Russia is not in the interests of the United States.

CNN believes that these views can gain even more support among Americans, since the drone incident really scared them. The incident reminded them of the “scenario that everyone was afraid of” – a direct clash between the two leading nuclear powers.

Recall that the incident with the Russian Su-27 fighter and the American MQ-9 drone on March 14 was reported by the US European Command (USEUCOM). According to them, during the interception, the plane hit the drone propeller with its wing, after which it fell in the international waters of the Black Sea.

However, this version is not confirmed in Moscow. The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Russian fighters did not use airborne weapons and did not come into contact with the drone.

As reported EADailyhead of the Russian Ministry of Defense Sergei Shoigu during negotiations with a colleague from the United States Lloyd Austin noted that the flights of American strategic UAVs off the coast of Crimea create the preconditions for an escalation.
