On the evening of May 18, soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed a Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber. This happened near the city of Kupyansk, Kharkov region.

This was announced by military Yuri Kochevenko on  Twitter .

“Just now, near Kupyansk, Kharkiv region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed a Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber. For this is our sky,” Kochevenko wrote.

As noted in the  Telegram channel  “APU. War with the occupiers”, the Ukrainian defenders could easily get the aircraft of the occupiers from positions near Chuguev or Pechenegs.

  1. On one engine it could have limped awhile, and I highly question the accuracy of the marker on map. But always glad to see an orc birdy get splashed. Heroyam Slava!!!
