Turkey announced a Russian plane shot down in Syria.

After the emergence of information that a Syrian Su-22 fighter-bomber was shot down over the Syrian province of Hama a few hours ago (the export version of the Su-17 fighter-bomber is ed.), Turkey announced that a Russian was shot down over Syria combat aircraft.

According to the information provided by social networks, this is a Russian fighter, and in a number of messages it was indicated that it was a Su-22 fighter, and in some messages no details were disclosed, which obviously indicates provocativeness, since Russia did not uses similar warplanes.

Moreover, social networks reported that both pilots of the Russian Air Force were allegedly captured, although according to official data that appeared much earlier, we are talking about the Syrian Air Force fighter and, accordingly, Syrian pilots.

The Ebaa News, a media outlet for terrorist propaganda called Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham (a terrorist group whose activities are banned in the Russian Federation - Ed.), Published a report directly from the crash site, where it is clear that the wreckage of the downed Su -22 are scattered over a large area, which indicates that the aircraft was likely to have been destroyed from the Stinger MANPADS, but so far there is no evidence of this.

It is reported that the Syrian Air Force tried to cover up the departure of the surviving crew member, but the latter was still captured by terrorists.
