Quote: "The Ruscists have lost another Su-25 attack jet. During an enemy sortie on the Zaporizhzhia front, a National Guard guardsman has used an Igla MANPADS [man-portable air defense system - ed.] to launch a missile on the Su-25 jet. An explosion was heard just beyond a patch of forest following the strike. [We have] confirmed that the jet had crashed on the [Russian-] occupied territory. The target has been destroyed."

Details: The National Guard notes that the strike was carried out by a comrade of another – now famous – guardsman who is now known as "the avenger of Zaporizhzhia".
