Their missions and cargoes are also unknown.

USAF RQ-4 still tracking over Ukraine. Assuming RQ-4B Block 40, the AN/ZPY-2 sensor has a range of at least 250km, with a resolution of, at most, 1 foot. Based on that sensor range, here’s where she’s looking and what she’s seeing. #ADSB #AE540E pic.twitter.com/4Nwc4D0Tl6— Amelia (@ameliairheart) April 11, 2021
US President Joe Biden spoke with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky on 2 April, with the White House releasing a brief readoutpromising that Washington would provide “unwavering support” to Kiev “in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression.” On Sunday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said there would be “consequences” if Moscow acted “aggressively” against Ukraine.
On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the US and its allies not to fuel Kiev’s “militaristic sentiments” amid concerns that the country’s leaders may be gearing up to launch a new offensive against the Donbass breakaways. He stressed that Russian activities on Ukraine’s borders were related to the fact that Russia borders Ukraine, and asked what US troops and warships were doing in the country, thousands of kilometers from America’s shores.
Biden’s Long History With UkraineThe civil war in eastern Ukraine began in May 2014, several months after the victory of the US and European-sponsored coup d’etat in Kiev, which overthrew the country’s democratically elected government. Residents of the predominantly Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk declared autonomy from the new government after Kiev began making threats against the Ukraine’s Russian-speaking residents. Kiev responded by sending troops to the region to ‘restore order’, sparking a war which killed up to 31,000 people and left over 2.3 million people internally or externally displaced.
The war was became a frozen conflict with the signing of the Minsk Agreements in February 2015, which committed Kiev to grant the Donbass republics broad autonomy in exchange for a formal return to Ukrainian jurisdiction. The accords led to an uneasy ceasefire between Kiev and the breakaways, but Ukrainian lawmakers have refused to provide the regions with autonomy, thus freezing the reintegration process.
