Ukrainian military shot down a Russian Su-25 attack aircraft today, May 23, according to the 110th Separate Mechanized Brigade named after General Marko Bezruchko.

The day before, servicemen of the 110th Brigade had already shot down one enemy attack aircraft, and today they hit another Russian Su.

“Another two enemy aircraft were downed in our direction. The day before, our guys grounded an enemy Su-25 in the Donbas steppes. That's one. And today, the irrepressible anti-aircraft gunners of the 110th Mechanized Brigade sniped another Su. That's two,” the brigade said on its Facebook page.

The Su-25 is a Soviet attack aircraft whose main purpose is to support ground forces. This attack aircraft first took to the skies in 1975 and was put into service in 1981.

On Wednesday, May 22, the General Staff reported the destruction of an enemy Su-25 attack aircraft in the Pokrovsk direction.

Another Su-25 was shot down by the Ukrainian military in the Donetsk region last week. Once again, the fighters of the 110th Brigade demonstrated precision shooting.

Additionally, in May, Ukrainian forces also destroyed a Russian Ka-52 helicopter.
