Footage of the failed flight of the Russian Su-25 plane in the Kharkiv region has appeared. Ukrainian defenders “downed” another enemy aircraft. A video was published on the “Ukraine 365” channel of the Telegram social network. The plane was shot down during the flight and did not complete the mission, dialog.ua reports.
“There is! We hit it!” – a voice behind the frame can be heard after the “click”.
According to Telegram, the Center for Strategic Communications of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the video was taken near Volochiv Yar (the nearby city of Balaklia).
Ukrainian armed forces shoot down a Russian Su-25 for the second day in a row.
According to Oleksiy Arestovich, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the Ukrainian army has launched two counterattacks against Russian positions in eastern and southern Ukraine.
O. Arestović did not provide more information about the location of these retaliatory attacks, only saying that such information must be disclosed by the General Staff. The dual counteroffensive is aimed at constraining the Russian reserve and preventing the Russian military from strengthening one part of the front at the expense of the other, he said, adding that the Ukrainian military is indeed putting heavy pressure on Russian forces.
Although Arestovich’s comments could not yet be verified, Russian state television correspondents reported that the town of Balaklia in eastern Ukraine’s Kharkiv region was under attack on Tuesday, with areas including the village of Verbivka being retaken.
Although Ukraine’s counteroffensive in the Kherson region in the south of the country has been underway since last week, the Ukrainian military has provided very little information on its progress, but US and British intelligence also indicates that Ukrainian forces are advancing in the area.
President Volodymyr Zelensky met with his top military commanders on Tuesday to discuss the situation. In an evening video address, he did not elaborate on the counterattack, but thanked all the men and women of Ukraine’s armed forces for their service.
