The conscript of the National Guard, who is only 19 years old, is now performing combat missions, protecting the Ukrainian sky in the Zaporozhye direction, and mercilessly hitting the enemy in the air simply from the Igla MANPADS

In social networks, he was nicknamed the “Zaporozhye avenger” after the fighter shot down 3 enemy aircraft. The 19-year-old military himself noted that he would continue to do his job.


Developed in the USSR in the 70s, the Su-25 attack aircraft is actively used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Russian army. Despite its age, it remains a fairly effective machine, designed exclusively for strikes against ground targets.

As UNIAN reported, on July 15, fighters from the Special Operations Center “A” of the SBU, together with the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, accurately worked  on Russian Su-25s  from MANPADS. As a result, one attack aircraft was destroyed, the other was shot down.

  1. Well done!
    Only 19 and already an ace! Albeit, an ace on the ground, but that doesn’t matter. The important thing is the destroyed orc material. Maybe he could be put into a course as an instructor to show other soldiers how he shoots down those aircraft so effectively.
