The White House today said that the release of video showing a Russian fighter jet dumping fuel on a U.S. drone before it went down over the Black Sea undercut Russia’s version of events, The Hill reports. John Kirby, a White House spokesperson on national security issues, told reporters on a virtual briefing that the U.S. may never know what the intent of the Russian pilot was, but that the incident was “intentional harassment” and “intentionally aggressive.”

“The video is pretty darn conclusive about what happened and it absolutely just decimates the Russian lie,” Kirby said.

The Pentagon earlier Thursday released a video clip showing a Russian fighter jet approaching a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone on Tuesday and releasing fuel as it passes. The fuel dump appeared to be intended to blind the drone and drive it out of the area, the Pentagon said.


  1. Decimated the Russian lie? That means that the lie is obliterated and it remains the truth.

    What it should say that the video decimates the Russian version or explanation.
