KIEV, August 21 (RIA Novosti) - Independence supporters have downed a Ukrainian Air Force Su-25 Frogfoot attack plane over the Luhansk region late on Wednesday, a spokesman for the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine said.

Earlier a number of media reports suggested that a war plane had been shot down in the region.

“Today a Su-25 attack aircraft has been shot down while on a combat mission. The fate of the pilot is unknown yet but hope remains that he will be alright,” Andriy Lysenko told Ukrainian news channel 112.ua.

In early August, independence supporters in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic confirmed they had downed a Ukrainian Su-25 attack aircraft. Late last month, the militia shot down two Su-25 planes. Both pilots ejected.
