    The plane landed on the highway amid the exercises, meant to boost the readiness of the Ukrainian forces to avert possible aggression, an official statement from the military said.

    Ukrainian Su-27 fighter jet rammed into a street sign during military drills, 2+2 broadcaster reported, showing the video of the incident. The plane was landing on the Kiev-Chop highway when it grazed the sign and then pulled up in the sky again, with a metal part stuck in its air scoop. The Ukrainian air forces later stated it was a minor incident, noting that the plane was not damaged and the pilot didn't sustain any injuries.
