Ukraine Says Su-25s Were Shot Down From Russian Territory
Enough Grandstanding. It's Time For Real Sanctions Against Russia
UNIAN reports on a briefing given by Andrei Lysenko, the spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council (SNBO):

"Today, near the village of Dmitrovka, four Su-25 sturmoviks provided fire support to units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, who are bravely holding their positions on the border of our state," he said.

"After successfully completing their mission, they were fired on by heavy duty anti-aircraft missile systems. Even though they carried out anti-missile manoeuvres and fired heat flares, two of our aircraft were shot down at an altitude of 5,200 metres," said Lysenko.

"According to preliminary information, the missiles were launched from the territory of the Russian Federation," said the spokesman for the SNBO.

"MANPADS, which the terrorists have at their disposal, are unable to cause damage at such an altitude," he added.

Here is a rough map of the area:
