“The enemy assault aircraft was giving cover from the air to the infantry attacking the defense line. One of border guard units opened fire with a man-portable air defense system and shot down Russia’s combat aircraft, presumably Su-25. The plane was hit by a missile and caught fire. The pilot’s fate is remaining unknown,” the report states.
