Ukrinform quoted information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as reporting that Ukrainian forces have destroyed 332 Russian straight-wing aircraft and 325 helicopters since the war began.

The Su-34 is a twin-engine, two-seat jet aircraft, considered one of the most complex aircraft in Moscow’s arsenal.

The Su-35 is a single-seat multi-role fighter that can carry air-to-air, air-to-ground and anti-ship missiles.

Reuters reported that the loss of three planes will cost Moscow $100 million.

In December 2023, Ukrainian forces also announced they had destroyed three Su-34 aircraft in Kherson in southern Ukraine.

At that time, it was reported that the Patriot air defense system provided by the US shot down these three jets.

The announcement of shooting down 3 Russian planes was made by Ukraine on the day Kiev’s forces had to retreat from Avdiivka to avoid being surrounded and preserve their vitality, thereby giving Moscow its biggest symbolic victory since May.

Experts say that Avdiivka fell because Ukrainian forces had to fight in a state of ammunition shortages and were outnumbered, while US aid to Ukraine was frozen in the US Congress for many months.
