Black day for Russian aviation: in one day Russian Air Force loses 4 aircraft
May 13, 2023 can be considered a “black day” for Russian Air Force.
The invaders lost four aircraft at once.
Russian propaganda media reports that two Mi-8 helicopters, a Su-34 strike fighter and a Su-34 fighter-bomber have crashed in the Bryansk region during the day.
Initially, it was reported that a helicopter had crashed in the Bryansk region near the city of Klintsy. Later, the Russian media wrote that the fall had been caused by an engine fire.
However, from the video published by the eyewitnesses, it became known that the information was not true – the helicopter had been hit with a missile before falling to the ground near the village of Suretsky Muravey of the Klintsovsky District.
Subsequently, the Russian mass media began to report on the crash of two helicopters.
It is stated that the crash site of the second helicopter was found in the Unechsky district of the Bryansk region near the village of Volkustichi.
It is worth noting that according to Russian sources, it could not be ordinary Mi-8, but Mi-8MTPR-1 EW helicopters.
In turn, the Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber and Su-35 strike fighter were shot down in close proximity to the Ukrainian border near the village of Istrivka near Starodub.
The moment of the hit was caught on camera by a local resident. First, an object in the sky falling at a great distance is observed. Subsequently, the sound of an explosion is heard, followed by the burning Russian strike fighter quickly falling to the ground.
The crew members of the Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber were unable to eject. Their bodies have already been found at the crash site.
The wrecked Su-35 strike fighter was discovered within the village of Shkryabine of the Starodubsky District. The crew did not survive.
It is stated that an interception plan has been introduced on the territory of Klintsovsky district, and “saboteurs” who may have shot down helicopters and planes are wanted.
