The Russian plane was hunting for Ukrainian ground attack aircraft.
The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine shot down a Russian Su-35 fighter in the sky over the Kherson region.
This was reported by the Command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook.
“Today, May 27, at about 14:00, a MiG-29 fighter of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the sky of the Kherson region shot down a Russian Su-35 fighter, which was hunting for Ukrainian attack aircraft,” the statement said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine , 206 Russian aircraft were shot down between February 24 and May 27.
On the whole, almost 30,000 Russian military men have already been “cobzonized” by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Over the past day alone, our soldiers eliminated 150 invaders.
The defense of Ukraine is effective, but at the same time, the supply of certain types of weapons can become a decisive factor in our victory. So, military analyst Jonathan Landley assures that if the Biden administration does decide to transfer MLRS missile systems to Ukraine , this could be a decisive factor in the victory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
