Fears have been circulating since the early days of the war that Russian forces in the secluded Transnistria region could attack Ukraine and help the Russian army capture Odessa.

Now, as operations intensify in the northwest of the Black Sea and in the Odessa region, the material of Russian troops in Transnistria is once again becoming relevant.
Rq-4B Global Hawk can observe large areas of very high altitude.
The United States’ tallest surveillance drone, the Northrobe Groman RQ-4B Global Walk, flew several times over the U.S. or NATO Romania and the Black Sea, conducting surveillance aircraft very close to the border with eastern Romania near the Republic of Moldova. .
The Northrop Krumman RQ-4 Global Hawk drones are unmanned aerial vehicles that fly at very high altitudes and can observe large areas using high-resolution artificial aperture radar (SAR) and electro-optical sensors or infrared cameras.
The drone flies at an altitude of 18,000 meters and is capable of withstanding more than 32 hours.
The drone can cover an area of 100,000 square kilometers per day, for example comparable to Iceland.
