Moscow releases video of Sukhoi downing over Idlib

The Russian Sukhoi-25 was shot down Saturday over the embattled Idlib province of northern Syria, apparently by a man-portable air defense system (MANPAD), the defense ministry in Moscow confirmed. The jet was flying a high-precision missile strike in an area controlled by the Islamist Jabhat Fatah al-Sham. The pilot ejected from the aircraft and survived the descent to earth, but was killed in a battle with the terrorists. The Russian MoD reports that, according to “radio intercepts,” more than 30 Jabhat fighters were killed in the strike.

      After bombing civilians is great to know that those raghead pariahs killed him.

    This is a good test of Putler’s Army. Old tech. Imagine if Free Ukraine managed to join NATO or European Union: Putler’s army would be expelled from occupied Krimea and from Free Ukraine in one day.
    Putler, go back to your Russia. Opress and repress your own people there, like you did since 1917. Continue to implement the beloved Russian People’s slogan: “Destroy Dissent!”, just like it has been since 1917.

      If the Syrian opposition all had MANPADS, Assad, Iran and the Russians would be finished in Syria.
