Reading Time: 1 minute

The United States has said it has conducted an “extraordinary” flight over Ukraine amid escalating tensions between Kiev and Moscow.

The announcement comes eleven days after a naval clash that saw Russian forces open fire on and seize three Ukrainian warships near the Kerch Strait.

In a statement released on Thursday, the Pentagon said the timing of the flight – undertaken as part of the Open Skies Treaty, was “intended to reaffirm US commitment to Ukraine and other nations.”
