Separatists Shot Down a MiG-29 Yesterday
6 years
Russia's Stocks Bounce Back, Ukraine's Economy Drops
Yesterday the Ukrainian government reported that a MiG-29 jet fighter was shot down by Russian-backed separatists. "Most likely it was shot down from the Buk anti-aircraft missile system." Today pictures of the wreckage confirms that it was a MiG-29 that was shot down.

Translation: Plane shot down by terrorists yesterday outside Enakievo.

The Ukrainian government has not said why they believe the jet was shot down by a Buk. Perhaps the pilot reported a radar lock, or perhaps he was flying at an altitude that would require a more advanced missile to hit. Regardless, Ukraine's aircraft continue to struggle against the anti-aircraft threat from the separatists.
