He noted that the attack took place almost 600 km from the Ukrainian border.

Currently, Yusov stated that the intelligence can confirm significant damage to one Su-57 jet and lighter damage to another, which may be repairable by the occupiers in a shorter time frame.

"Nevertheless, the fact remains: this is the first time that Su-57 jets have been hit, and it is the first time that two such 'new' Russian fighter jets have been hit at once," Yusov added.
