Urgent messages come from Armenia. The Armenian Air Force publishes information that an F-16 fighter of the Turkish Air Force shot down a Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian Air Force. According to the latest information, the Sushka pilot had no chance of surviving after being attacked by a Turkish fighter.
At the same time, it is claimed in Yerevan that the Armenian attack aircraft was in the airspace of Armenia and did not fly beyond the air borders of the republic.
However, it can be assumed that the Turkish fighter, as they say, was guarding the plane of the Armenian Air Force. And if he flew out of the airspace of Armenia even to several hundred meters, then the F-16 immediately struck.
But if the strike was delivered at the moment when the attack aircraft of the Armenian air force was in the airspace of Armenia, then the actions of the Turkish aviation can be regarded as an attack by the NATO state on a state that is part of the CSTO. In any case, Ankara's actions only add fuel to the flames of the conflict in the South Caucasus.
According to the latest information, the Turkish Air Force fighter took off not from the Turkish airfield, but from the Ganja airfield in the Republic of Azerbaijan. This is proof of the lie of the Turkish side, which tried to refute the data on the transfer of its fighters to Azerbaijan the day before.
It is known that, along with the F-16 of the Turkish Air Force, several attack drones also took off into the air.
It is clarified that the attack on the Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force was carried out at an altitude of more than 8 thousand meters.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia stated that they were ready to use a "powerful weapon long-range "if Turkey uses its military aircraft to intervene in the conflict.
Meanwhile, experts have suggested that it is important for certain forces to provoke Russia's involvement in this conflict in the Transcaucasus at any cost.
Turkey and Azerbaijan have not yet officially commented on the reports of the Armenian side about the Su-25.
