During the day, there were reports of helicopters and planes falling from the sky. As it turned out later, all the crashed cars were part of the same air group.
It is known about the fall of 4 cars:
- Helicopter MI-8 1 MTPR fire support
- Helicopter Mi-8 transport
- Su-35C fighter
- Su-34 bomber
The task of the Su-34 bomber was to bomb targets in the Chernihiv region of Ukraine. The Su-35S fighter was covering the bomber. Two helicopters insured the pilots of the aircraft in case of their ejection over the territory of Ukraine.
However, the air group did not even have time to cross the border of Ukraine, all the aircraft were shot down over the territory of Russia.
The photographs from the helicopter crash site clearly show traces of shrapnel.
