Revelation 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

  • French flights include long-range patrols by its AWACS surveillance aircraft.

The surveillance flights can spot missile launches, airborne bombing runs and other military activity in the Ukraine conflict.
  • Russian pilots have at times made clear that they don´t like being watched.
