Russian Air Force Shoots Down MiG-29 Ukraine Fighter Jet in Dogfight.
Russia’s air force downed a Ukrainian fighter jet during a dogfight that took place in one of Ukraine’s eastern Russian-backed separatist regions, according to Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov.
During an aerial battle, a MiG-29 plane of the Ukrainian Air Force was shot down near Slovyansk in the Donetsk People’s Republic, he said, according to an English translation of his comments.
Russia’s purported aerial success came as a campaign assessment from the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported that the Ukrainian counteroffensive was seeing some of its own success on the ground in parts of eastern Ukraine, where fighting is currently concentrated.
