The moment of the destruction of the Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft over the island of Serpents was caught on video

A Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft was shot down over Snake Island.

A new attempt by the Ukrainian military to attack Snake Island, which was already reported this morning by the news agency, ended in a new failure for Kyiv. As it became known, the Russian military was not only able to repel the attack with 12 rockets, but also to shoot down the Su-25 attack aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force. Video footage of the destruction of the latter was filmed by residents of Odessa.

According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile system of the RF Armed Forces shot down a Ukrainian Su-25 aircraft and 12 rockets near Zmeiny Island. It was possible to avoid casualties among the personnel, although earlier the presence of Pantsir-S complexes on the island was not reported.

The news agency obtained a video recording of the moment of the destruction of a Ukrainian combat aircraft, which, in all likelihood, intended to attack the island and its infrastructure. Remarkably, the aircraft flew at high altitude and, probably for this reason, it was successfully detected and shot down by air defense systems.

The presented video frames, according to the source, just captured the moment of the destruction of the Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft. The fact that the aircraft was at a sufficiently high altitude is evidenced by the continuously falling fragments of an already struck combat aircraft. The latter, apparently, was shot down a few kilometers from the island in preparation for the attack or when trying to re-enter.
