During an enemy sortie on the Zaporizhzhia front, a National Guard guardsman has used an Igla MANPADS [man-portable air defense system - ed.] to launch a missile on the Su-25 jet. An explosion was heard just beyond a patch of forest following the strike. [We have] confirmed that the jet had crashed on the [Russian-] occupied territory. The target has been destroyed."
