Summary

Russian military has developed technology capable of neutralizing an adversary’s planes, ships and missiles within a 5,000-kilometer radius, and a Russian warplane successfully tested this electronic jamming device on an American destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, in the Black Sea. This technology could wipe out the entire U.S. Navy.

Disproof

No evidence given. Russia’s claims about harming the Donald Cook are false, according to Jorge Benitez, director of NATO Source and a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security. “The Russian fighter jet was unarmed (i.e., no missiles beneath its wings) and there is no evidence that it damaged the U.S. ship in any way.” The U.S. Navy confirms no damage was done to the destroyer. bit.ly/2qztN46,
