Video shows Ukrainian fighter jet shot down over Kyiv, officials say

A Ukrainian fighter jet was shot down over Kyiv early Friday morning and can be seen exploding in a fiery blaze over the city in widely shared videos online.

Ukrainian Deputy Interior Minister Evgeny Yenin told CNN the aircraft was a Sukhoi Su-27 fighter jet and part of Ukraine’s military.

After exploding in midair, the aircraft’s debris can be seen raining down across Kyiv in the dark morning hours, according to one video on Twitter.

Earlier reports had claimed Ukrainian forces shot down a Russian fighter jet, which appeared to be disputed by Yenin.
