US and Russia offer different versions of Reaper drone crash

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday urged Moscow to operate its aircraft safely and professionally, saying a collision between a Russian military jet and a U.S. drone was part of a “risk” move. Washington claims a Russian Su-27 clipped an MQ-9 the day before, leaving the drone unmanned and demanding it be shot down in the Black Sea, while Moscow denies any involvement.
