A Russian Su-25 fighter-bomber crashed today in the Sea of ​​Azov near the city of Yeisk, local officials said in a statement on social media.

An unconfirmed video posted on the Telegram app by the Baza channel, a channel with links to Russia’s security services, shows a fighter jet flying low over the sea near the coast, then it sinks into the sea with a splash after a pilot ejects and a parachute heads for the surface of the sea.

Another video, the authenticity of which has not been confirmed, shows the parachute, a large splash marking the crash of the aircraft, visible from the nearby shore which is full of holidaymakers.

The city of Yeisk is located on the northeastern arm of the Sea of ​​Azov about 45 kilometers from the Russian-controlled part of Ukraine’s Donetsk region on the opposite coast.

Officials in Russia’s Krasnodar region initially said the pilot had been pulled from the sea, but state news agency TASS later reported the pilot was dead.

Last October, a more advanced Su-34 fighter-bomber crashed into an apartment complex in Yeisk, killing 14 people.
