Bomber Su-24


Washington: Russia's Su-24 was destroyed in Syria

Washington confirmed the destruction of the Russian bomber in Syria.

It is necessary to clarify the circumstances that initially the Turkish Air Force command reported that the Russian Su-24 bomber violated Turkey's airspace, and after several warnings it was destroyed by the Turkish F-16 fighter, which also provided data from the radars. Nevertheless, given the real facts and data from all the same Turkish radars, the plane stayed in Turkey for only a few seconds, while the Turkish command reported more than 5-minute stay of the Russian aircraft.

At the moment, in connection with the destruction of the Su-24 bomber, an investigation is being carried out, while, as stated yesterday, Russia intends to introduce emergency security measures in Syria, destroying any air targets carrying threats to its and Syrian aircraft.
