“These hypersonic missiles have already been used by the Russian military to attack positions in Ukraine,” he explains. “What’s new is that we’re going to have more flights over the Black Sea, which will come face-to-face with American planes, and therefore increase the risk of slippage and accidents. “It’s a way for Moscow to raise the tension a bit.
