According to Nemichev: "At about 18:15, a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine shot down a Russian fighter jet from a mobile anti-aircraft missile system near the Kharkiv Aviation Factory. The pilot of the Russian jet did not have time to eject and died on the spot. The plane crashed near Kulinichi."

Details: City residents were urged to continue to hide in shelters, as Ukrainian intelligence has reason to expect even more Russian fighter jets over the city.

Eyewitnesses on social media shared a video of the destruction of the Russian jet. In addition, Kharkiv residents shared a video in which the wreckage of the plane allegedly fell on a house.
