A video appeared about the Russian MiG-29 fighter shot down over Libya, which, according to Turkish sources, was hit by the anti-aircraft guided missile of the Turkish MiM-23 “Hawk” air defense system.
On the presented video you can see, how the pilot demonstrates the terrain after “bailout” from the downed MiG-29 fighter.
The pilot captured a video showing his parachute and terrain where the plane was shot down, — the pilot appeared in good morale in the video after he escaped from the plane.
Russian media also reported that a MiG-29 fighter of the Russian Aerospace Forces, flying in the uncontrolled territory, was shot down by an anti-aircraft guided missile, presumably launched by the Turkish air defense systems, which were transferred to Libyan GNA a few months ago.
At the end of the video, you can see how a Mi-24 helicopter with the paint of the Libyan National Army of General Khalifa Haftar arrives for the military, which is waging a war against the Libyan government and enjoys the support of the Russian Federation.
So far, there are no official comments from the Russian Federation regarding the destruction of the MiG-29 fighter. The media report earlier that a Mi-8 helicopter was downed by Turkey, but there is no further information about the fate of the pilot.
