Victorious news of 583rd day of war: Russian forces shoot down their Su-35 near Tokmak, unknown subversive group enter Bryansk region

29 September, 2023 Friday

Russian air defense shot down its own Su-35 near Tokmak, and an unknown subversive group entered the Bryansk region

Russian troops shot down their own aircraft over Tokmak

On the night of September 29, Russian air defense in the temporarily occupied Tokmak, Zaporizhzhia region, successfully destroyed its own aircraft, probably a Su-35

This was reported by Oleksandr Kovalenko, a military and political observer of the Information Resistance group, on Espreso.

"According to this information, last night near Tokmak, a Su-35 multifunctional fighter jet was indeed shot down by Russian air defense systems. Another thing is very interesting here: there is a general friend-or-foe system that helps to recognize whether it is a friendly or enemy aircraft. So, in general, the air defense system that shot it down was most likely an S-300, and the operators had to understand that it was their own aircraft," the expert explains.

According to him, the Su-35 is one of the most expensive aircraft in the Russian Federation, and it is not often used for combat missions, as, for example, the Su-34 frontline bomber.

UK imposed sanctions on those involved in sham elections in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories

On September 29, the UK government imposed new sanctions against Russia over the elections in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine. In particular, the list of sanctioned persons was expanded to include the heads of occupation administrations and persons involved in organizing and conducting sham elections.

"In the latest futile attempt to normalize Russia's illegitimate control over sovereign Ukrainian territory, Russia organized illegal sham 'elections' earlier this month. These elections are yet another violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity and the UN Charter. Earlier this month, the UK confirmed to the UN Security Council evidence that the results were pre-determined," the statement says. 

In particular, the sanctions list includes Russian Emergency Situations Minister Alexander Kurenkov, Russian CEC Secretary Natalia Budarina, the head of the so-called Kherson Regional State Administration Andriy Aleksiyenko, and the head of the "election commission" in Kherson Marina Zakharova.

A powerful explosion occurred in Berdyansk

A powerful explosion occurred in the temporarily occupied Berdyansk, which caused power outages in the city. This was reported by the head of the Berdyansk City Military Administration Viktoria Halitsyna.

The explosion was heard in several districts of Berdyansk. We are clarifying the information and following the news from the AFU General Staff," she wrote on Telegram.
