Coup for Kyiv: Ukraine Destroys Putin’s “Frogfoot”

Ukraine has allegedly dealt another blow to the Russian military. This is reported by the X-channel, formerly Twitter channel, Noelreports on the messaging service.

According to this, Ukraine has managed to destroy a Sukhoi Su-25. This would already be the third Su-25 that Russia has lost this week, according to the corresponding post. The Sukhoi Su-25 is a ground attack aircraft developed in the Soviet Union. At the transatlantic defense alliance NATO, the ground attack aircraft is also known under the name “Frogfoot”. It had its first flight in 1975 and is still used by Russian forces in war – also in the illegal war of aggression against Ukraine.

These statements have not yet been verified and / or confirmed by an independent party. For this reason, they are to be rated with reservation. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to the conflict to deliberately spread false information to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the opponent.
