The US drone reportedly seen flying over the contact line in Donbass this weekend carries out flights over eastern Ukraine "almost every month," the spokesman for the Luhansk People's Republic's (LPR) militia, Andrey Marochko, said on Monday.

LUHANSK (Sputnik) – According to media reports, a US RQ-4A Global Hawk drone carried out an hours-long flight along the contact line in Donbass on Sunday.

"This unmanned flying vehicle flies over the territory of Donbass almost every month and its technical characteristics allow carrying out reconnaissance of whole our territory without crossing the contact line," Marochko said.
