"Of course, the wreckage of the American MQ-9 Reaper drone is of interest to the Russian defense industry," Rostec said.

According to representatives of the state corporation, any such find needs to be "disassembled and studied to the last bolt."

Also in "Rostec" said that all captured equipment is carefully studied. The state corporation explained that in the foreign defense industry there are "both obvious successes and outright blunders."

On March 14, Russian pilots intercepted an American MQ-9 Reaper drone, which then fell into the Black Sea. The pilots did not use weapons or come into contact with the UAV.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu awarded the pilots with the Order of Courage.
