Ukraine's Presidential Office head Andrii Yermak earlier published a video on Telegram showing the aircraft's downing.

The footage shows that the plane's pilot managed to eject with a parachute. Ukraine's Air Force hasn't yet commented on the news.

Earlier the same day, the General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces reported that Russia had lost 304 airplanes and 289 helicopters since the beginning of its all-out war against Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022.
