The de facto security agency of Georgia’s Russian-occupied Tskhinvali region says that they have detected a US surveillance aircraft Global Hawk RQ-4B near ‘their border.’ 

The de facto agency stated that the drone ‘carried out air intelligence operations’ between January 14 - 21, 2021. 

The aircraft took off from a NATO air base in Sicily and flew south of the South Ossetian-Georgian and Russian-Georgian state borders, above the territories of Shida-Kartli, Mtskheta-Mtianeti and Kakheti," the so-called security agency said. 

The agency also stated that Georgian intelligence officers were observed at the village of Tsnelisi (near the occupied region) and accused them of planning of ‘subversive acts’.
