A Russian Su-35 fighter was shot down over the Black Sea

In just over a week, the Russian Air Force has lost at least two Su-35 fighter jets. The second was shot down on the evening of May 21 over the Black Sea.

Information about the destruction of the Russian plane appeared on social networks. This was confirmed very quickly by the head of the press service of the Kherson Defense Force, Dmitry Pletinchuk.

He described the downing of the fighter jet as a “wonderful sight”, but deleted the post a few minutes later. So the official confirmation had to wait until the morning.
