One of the two Su-25 military aircraft shot down in eastern Ukraine on July 23 could have been downed with an air-to-air missile launched from a Russian fighter.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said this in an interview with BBC.
“Probably the second fighter was shot down by an air-to-air missile. This means that it was downed by another fighter who definitely was not a Ukrainian one,” he said.
When asked whether Yatseniuk is sure that the Su-25 was shot down by the Russian Air Force, he said: “We all know who is behind all this. We know who supplies weapons, who finances terrorists, who supports pro-Russian rebels, and who supplied a SA-11 [Buk] system that shot down passenger jet MH17.”
