A representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, said that the Kremlin's reaction was "hot and strong" after the Russian Su-57 fighter jet had been targeted

He said this during a national telethon.

Yusov made it clear that Ukrainian intelligence can confirm the fact that the Su-57 was targeted in Russia, but the operation itself, he said, can be neither confirmed nor denied.

"But yes, it's great news: Putin is really furious, and the reaction in the Kremlin is very hot and tangible. Because they tried to carefully hide and protect the Su-57s. And these Su-57s never entered the airspace of Ukraine - they were afraid of being shot down," the intelligence representative said.

He added that the Russian occupation army intentionally exaggerated the characteristics of the fighter jet to sell it and to be present on the international arms market. In particular, the aircraft was also used for missile attacks on Ukrainian civilian targets, and therefore the punishment was deserved.

In addition, Yusov stated that he had information about the destruction of two Su-57s, as well as the deaths and injuries of Russian troops. At the same time, Russia's information field has so far confirmed that only one warplane had been hit.

"When there is objective confirmation, we will say two. Currently, there is information about two Su-57s being hit. We still need to wait for objective confirmation," said the DIU spokesman.

According to him, it is about the damage, not the destruction of Su-57s.

"We understand that this is a complex technological process. It will take the enemy a long time to diagnose the damage. And the restoration will take the same time. And if we talk about the fact that there are not many of them, the Su-57s in the Putin's army, then any loss is a serious blow to the enemy's capabilities," Yusov said.

He also added that Russia had up to a dozen Su-57s before.

  • On June 8, a Russian Su-57 multi-role fighter jet was targeted at the Akhtubinsk airfield in Astrakhan region, Russia, 589 kilometers from the contact line.
  • Dmytro Zhmaylo, co-founder and executive director of the Ukrainian Centre for Security and Cooperation, said that the Su-57 was most likely irreparably damaged.
