A video footage was posted on the social media of a Russian combat jet approaching to within just several hundred yards of a U.S MQ-9 Reaper drone over Syria.
Maxmpower, an Instagram channel dedicated to Russian military aviation, has posted the video footage which accompanied by the phrase “Peek-a-boo my little one,” and the hashtags #Su27, #Su30 and #Su35.
Russia’s defence ministry has not commented on the footage.
It is not clear how old the video, nor if it is actually in Syria.
The Russian and U.S. forces in Syria maintain a deconflication line that is supposed to reduce dangerous situations like this; however, the two world powers have come across one another in previous flights before.
